CINCINNATI (WKRC) – Kids are in crisis in these pandemic times, and it’s not getting better. That’s the latest from a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on teens and mental health.
This report is really a cry for help, and perhaps no one knows that better than Marcia Gause. This brave teen is sharing her story with Local 12 in the hopes that others who see it will not give up.
“I thought it would be great. I don’t have to go to school? I’m so happy,” said Marcia about when the pandemic first started.
Like many high school students, when the pandemic shut down Marcia’s classroom, at first, she missed her life but was OK, but that changed over time.
