Pandemic Anxiety and Family Stress
We know the continuing pandemic has deeply impacted families. We know we are living in a time of shortage; shortage of teachers, medical supplies, consumer supplies, workers, and a rise in prices, especially for food and gas. And there is no end in sight.

Our families need supports, especially those of us with youth and young adults with mental health diagnoses.

You will take home:
Understanding how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our lives and American society in general;
Awareness of how the pandemic has led to changes in mental health, substance use, and the services to treat these conditions; and,
Insights into how the stress brought on by the pandemic has affected family life.
