 How to support your child's mental health through the pandemic

 

Dear Parents,

Amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, everyday life has changed and will continue to change for most people, often with little notice. Children may struggle with significant adjustments to their routines (e.g., school closures, social distancing and home confinement), which may interfere with their sense of structure, Predictability and security.
