Questions related to Adolescent Mental Health
Hi, this is Manjari here. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. at Christ University. My research is titled “Development and Testing the Efficacy of a Mental Health Awareness and Destigmatisation (MHAD) Program among Adolescents.” I would use a mixed-method approach. From mental health professionals in Bangalore, the first qualitative phase will involve gathering insight into adolescents' mental health needs and duration, mode, and strategies of anti-stigma interventions among adolescents. For this purpose, I have created a schedule for interviews and am looking for suggestions from academicians, researchers, and practitioners for validating my interview schedule. I will be happy to provide any additional information you need. I would like to send you an email to continue our conversation. You can reach me at email@example.com.
Edit: Thanks everyone for your contributions to the discussion. I think it's helped my clarify the focus of what I was asking better. Specifically, I am interested in how can we support youth wellbeing if their ability to interact with PEERS is constrained because of social distancing protocols. What are some protective factors or strategies that can make up for deficits in social interaction with peers at this time?
There are a lot of articles in the news about the detrimental effect of the pandemic on children and youths' mental health - the main argument is always around the decrease in opportunities for social interaction with their peers. While I don't doubt that social interaction with peers is a developmental milestone for adolescents, I do wonder to what degree this emphasis on PEER interaction specifically is culturally bound?
In western cultures, kids generally go to school and are sorted by age and grade and therefore interact primarily with their peers. But in some cultures this type of sorting is not predominant. Also, what about children who are homeschooled? Who live in rural areas? Who are only-children? There are variety of scenarios where children don't have as much interaction with kids their age. What do you think, research community? Is PEER social interaction, the kind they would get at school, essential to child and adolescent development? Or is social interaction in general, regardless of age group, the essential part? Can you point me to any interesting reads in this area of study?

I am a non-professional member of a mobile crisis team in mental health. We see refractory school refusers, and anecdotally a strong association with having a medically fragile family member, and weaker one with hoarding in home.
