Children's Mental Health Matters

It's Mental Health Monday!

Being a parent can be stressful in many ways. Add in a global pandemic, school closures, remote working, and nagging uncertainty and stress can increase rapidly. How do we balance working from home while helping our children learn and play? How do we adapt to changing routines while managing our households as this situation unfolds?

During this difficult time, we want you to know that you are not alone. Adjusting to new routines is difficult for each of us—young and old. This week, we are providing links to information that we hope will support you as you navigate the new normal and create a routine that meets the needs of your family.

Right now we have been afforded more time with our children than usual; during this time is a perfect opportunity to have a conversation with your child. Take time to sit down with them and have a conversation about how they are feeling, how things have been going at school, their anxieties and worries. Talk about peer pressure, drugs and alcohol and how they can avoid them. Let your child lean in and listen to what they have to say.
