Treasure Coast channel raises awareness about teen mental health

PALM CITY — It can be stressful being a teen in today’s world, said Neera Goyal, a 16-year-old who hopes to raise awareness of teen mental health.

She said the students have gone through two years of the COVID-19 pandemic that has disrupted their learning and social interaction.

She said the COVID-19 pandemic has been particularly difficult because many schools went to remote learning during its early days. Goyal was in eighth grade in 2020 when she switched to distance learning, which lasted until the last quarter of ninth grade.

“This feeling of isolation and loneliness really hit me,” said Goyal, who created her nonprofit, Teen Mental Reset, to focus on teen mental health. “It really made me anxious.”
