Ease lockdown 16 -25 year olds

This particular group of society in my opinion are the ones whos mental health is most likely to suffer during this time. They have had to deal with the chaos of exams being cancelled. Additionally who does not remember how important your friends are at this age. I think if lick down is not eased for this group it is only a matter of time before the agnst of youth will begin to ignore advice. Is it not preferable to do it in a controlled manner?

Why the contribution is important

This is the age group that can particulary suffer from mental health issues such as self harming, sucide etc.

    Why only that age group? Do you have scientific evidence to back this? Rebels come in all ages...

    Absolutely agree. The age group that rely on friends for support more than any. Many of my friends in this age group are severely struggling, stuck in lockdown alone and unable to cope

    Sorry but this age group can still spread the virus to others, so no reason they should be singled out for easement! We need to be more creative to help with mental health issues, both now and those in future.

    This is the age group that are currently flouting the current lockdown guidelines so are more likely to be the ones continuing to spread the virus to others.
