Webinar: Supporting Child and Teen Mental Health During a Pandemic

April 24, 2020

Right now, many families are finding themselves in a unique situation: managing children who are out of school, stuck at home, and with their lives disrupted.

This unprecedented experience has caused disruption—and confusion—for many students. Not only has the classroom disappeared or become digital, but milestones, athletic endeavors, and social circles have been affected tremendously.

Youth mental health expert Lisa W. Coyne, PhD, shares strategies to support the mental health of K-12 students, including talking about the foundations of coping and suggesting ways to navigate the newfound social and learning environments.

This content is also available in Spanish.
