Kids' Mental Health: Lessons from the Pandemic
The pandemic has worsened the mental health of millions of children. Blake Works has created the online program Kids' Mental Health: Lessons from the Pandemic, which features children and parents describing the challenges they faced. Mental health experts from McLean Hospital and Mass General Hospital, including our advisor Dr. Paula K. Rauch, offer guidance to parents and other caring adults for having resilience-building conversations about stresses kids face growing up — from day-to-day personal challenges to global crises.
“These videos are must-viewing for all employees. They offer strategies for responding to kids’ needs. When family stress is reduced, parents are more present and focused at work. The videos also offer a clear understanding of challenges facing parents, creating supportive colleagues and managers. We can all have a positive impact on children in our lives.”
