Dealing with Youth Mental Health During a Pandemic
Please join us for an important discussion with leading medical experts about the challenges being faced by young people, available resources, and ways we can all assist our youth during this time.
Mental health issues among youth have escalated during the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving many young people feeling isolated, stressed and anxious. Outlets previously available to them for dealing with stress and anxiety have been restricted or closed. In addition, for some there are new sources of stress, including family strife, food insecurity, social anxiety and unemployment. The result is that many young people are left feeling overwhelmed, with nowhere, or no one, to turn. For some, this can lead to tragic consequences.
