Pandemic Crisis Related to the Youth Community (A Case Study to Examine its Causes, Extent and Suggested Recovery Therapeutic Action Plan)

Lavanya Gupta

Abstract: The pandemic seems to be the perfect storm to embed depression and anxiety. For the youth community, the pandemic crisis poses considerable risks in the fields of education, employment, mental health and disposable income. To contain the spread of the virus, social confinement measures and limitation of individual freedom led to disease-related psychological stress. The pandemic crisis caused the future of the youth society to become extremely precarious and uncertain. This section of our society has low financial strength and limited work experience and represents 65% of India?s 1.3 billion populations. A keen student of psychology, I analyzed the causes of mental health issues of the youth related to the pandemic, the extent of its spread globally and suggested simple self-therapeutic steps to solve mental illness during this crisis. This paper also comprises the results of 3 online surveys I conducted to study the impact of the pandemic on the mental health status of the Indian youth namely-Social life & mental status of the youth during the self-lockdown, Unplanned mass homeschooling experiences due to the pandemic and The voice of the youth to discuss the impact of the pandemic on their employment opportunities. This project concludes with interviews I conducted with a psychologist, educationist and economist to attain first-hand information in their respective fields related to the COVID crisis connected to the youth and my learning experiences from the study.
