The Pandemic and Kids' Mental Health

The pandemic has worsened the mental health of millions of children. Blake Works has created the online program The Pandemic and Kids Mental Health, 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 on engaging children in resilience-building conversations in and beyond the pandemic.

“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.”
