(Preprint) Examining changes in child mental health throughout the UK’s first lockdown

Examining changes in parent-reported child and adolescent mental health throughout the UK’s first COVID-19 national lockdown.

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly changed the lives of children and adolescents, forcing them into periods of prolonged social isolation and time away from school. Understanding the psychological consequences of the UK’s lockdown for children and adolescents, the associated risk factors, and how trajectories may vary for children and adolescents in different circumstances is essential so that the most vulnerable children and adolescents can be identified and appropriate support can be implemented.
