‘We just kind of push it away’: Teens may be experiencing more depression, anxiety due to isolation

EL DORADO COUNTY, Calif. — The coronavirus pandemic has put an incredible amount of pressure and stress on kids, teens and young adults.

Caelan Bonniksen, a high school senior in California, said it was tough to lose his last year of football and a normal school year.

“I mean, being with your teammates, having that family bond together, it feels amazing,” Bonniksen said.

But almost as tough as this year is, Bonniksen said it’s even tougher to talk about it with friends.

“None of us want to say it, none of us want to bring attention towards it, but it’s there, and we just kind of push it away, which is the worst thing to really do,” he said.

Rachael Chisenhall, a marriage and family therapist, said she’s never seen so many young people coming to her office before.

“I think one of the main issues that we’re seeing across the board in the mental health field is how isolated (teens) are right now.
