He was speaking after Barnardos released a report detailing the impacts of COVID-19 on the mental health of students and young people.



The Newry and Armagh MLA said, “The stress and anxiety caused by the current A-Level results crisis are having a detrimental impact on the mental health of our young people.

“The public health emergency is already placing a strain on young people’s mental health.



“This has been exacerbated by this unnecessary situation.

“COVID-19 and the current way of life are unprecedented, and children should not be punished as a result.



“The Education Minister must urgently bring forward solutions which are both flexible and fair and lift the burden off young people’s shoulders,” he added.
