The number of children and teens suffering from depression, anxiety, shame, loneliness, and fear were already rising before the pandemic.
The CDC reports that 80% never receive treatment.
These issues are being exacerbated by the crisis especially in isolation and an absence of usual support systems.
To help, our psychologists and educators are now adapting the same mental health support tool teaching resilience, emotion regulation, empathy, conflict resolution, restorative justice, and more — that we're already proving successful in schools.
We are making them available globally - free of charge in English, Spanish, Italian, and German.
Twenty years of university research shows that the type of work our psychologists have created has a powerful, positive impact on children's and teens’ mental health and development, with potentially lifelong benefits.
The mental health habits that children and teens are now creating during lockdown healthy or harmful will impact their futures (and ours!) long after this crisis has ended. We must act now.
