Child and family mental health have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in countless unique ways. The ongoing stress has impacted every aspect of community, school and family life. With kids studying from home, schools opening and closing, persistent fear of the virus – and for some, work, food and housing instability – traditional ways of coping may not be working. The Institute for Mental Health Research is hosting a COVID-19 Webinar series titled: “Navigating the Pandemic: Lessons Learned from Mental Health Research

In this webinar, mental health specialists will share their research and expertise. You’ll learn about coping strategies that build hope and resilience, as well as specific evidence-based steps every parent can take right now to help their children, themselves and their families to rally, thrive and improve mental health. Drs. Carlson and Crnic will make time for interactive Q&A so you can get answers to your most pressing questions.
