Our experts will discuss the impact the pandemic has had on children’s mental health and suggest coping strategies for children and families. They will address the challenges of distance learning, the effects of school closures and disruptions on children who previously received mental health care at school, impacts on special populations, complications involving access and equity, and the long-term effects the pandemic might have on children.
