Community Event: Pediatric Mental Health in the Wake of a Pandemic: Data, Strategies and Stories
Brought to you by Region IV Public Health Training Center
The recent pandemic has created a confluence of uncertainty, social isolation, and disruptions in services and supports important to children. The nature and extent of the mental health impact on this age group depends on pre-existing vulnerabilities, contextual issues related to their COVID experiences, and the effectiveness of response efforts. In this interactive, virtual webinar, risks and protective factors will be identified, and effective strategies for promoting recovery from pandemic related distress will be explored using a developmental lens, and a social-ecological framework. Whenever possible, child and parent narratives will be used to illustrate concepts.
