Tips and Resources

Resources to Help Children During COVID

The Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute created two resources to assist parents and caregivers during these difficult times. In the resource Emotionally Managing COVID-19: A Parent and Caregiver’s Guide, parents and caregivers can learn to recognize common reactions children and youth may experience. This resource is also available in Spanish. The resource Staying Mindful of Child Development When Discussing COVID-19, parents and caregivers learn how to talk to their children in a developmentally appropriate manner.
