How Are Teenagers Coping During Pandemic Times?


The teenage years are a time for increasing independence, forming an identity outside the family, and connecting with like minded peers. For seniors in high school it's a time of milestones and excitement for the future. A pandemic and social isolation puts a halt to all of this.

We hear from teens navigating through this time, and we sort through some of the challenges, emotions and opportunities, with our guests on The Point:

Ellen Queeney- LISCW for family and teens in private practice


Takeru Nagayoshi- Massachusetts teacher of the year for 2020 and English teacher at New Bedford High School


Scott Fitzmaurice- Executive Director, Cape and Islands Gay & Straight Youth Alliance
