Challenges faced by high school students throughout the COVID 19 pandemic and quarantine have increased an already troubling problem: struggles with mental health. A large number of students were struggling mentally due to quarantine, and unfortunately South high school students were not an exception. For this project, an independent research survey was created to explore how the mental health of Omaha South students were affected by the COVID- 19 pandemic. A voluntary survey was taken of students at Omaha South High school from three grade levels. This research was done to better understand the mental effects of quarantine within the population attending Omaha South High School In order to confirm and better understand the reasoning behind the decline in mental health.
