This brief country study draws out key findings on the impact of Covid-19 on the mental health
of adolescents between the ages of 11 and 19, in project locations in Tanzania. The
overall research aims are to discern broader drivers of mental ill-health and the preventative
factors that can protect mental well-being of adolescents. The project also seeks to capture wider
attitudes towards accessing mental health support, rather than charting the impacts on well-being
of a particular crisis.
While Covid-19 was not the focus of this project, given that data collection started
during the onset of the pandemic,
in-country researchers were able to incorporate some
questions into the qualitative component of the mixed method baseline study, exploring the
effects Covid-19 was having on the mental health of adolescents. This project continues to adapt
to the new context and will seek to understand the impact of the pandemic where feasible
