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, persistent fear of the virus – and for some, work, food and housing instability – traditional ways of coping may not be working. We’ve asked mental health experts to share their research and expertise. In this webinar, 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 family rally, thrive and improve their mental health.
This is the first in the IMHR 2021 Webinar Series:
"Navigating the Pandemic: Lessons Learned from Mental Health Research"
This webinar is for teachers, parents, family members, healthcare and mental health practitioners, academics, front-line workers in environments with kids - all who want to engage in this important dialogue about helping children (and ourselves) through pandemic upheaval and transition.
You will sit in on a live discussion with Ginger Carlson, Clinical Psychologist and Pediatric Specialist, and Keith Crnic, nationally recognized clinical and developmental scientist, with time for interactive Q&A so you can get answers to your most pressing questions.
The Institute for Mental Health Research (IMHR) is pleased to present this webinar as a complimentary, educational resource for our community. Our 20-year old nonprofit relies on the generosity of individuals, companies and foundations to provide this service, and to offer grants to Arizona mental health researchers, whose bold ideas pave the way to groundbreaking advancements.
