In Perspective this weekend you will find a commentary from Richard Carmona, a former U.S. surgeon general. He writes at length about one of the most troubling lingering consequences of the pandemic over the past two years: the negative impact on teen mental health.

There are some positives though. Because at the same time we received the commentary, we also learned from the U.S. Census Bureau that children are engaging in more extracurricular activities like lessons and sports than they did more than two decades ago.
