PTA Healthy Lifestyles
Multilingual Guides on Helping Kids Cope
Life is full of ups and downs. It is normal for our emotional state to change on a day-to-day basis and in periods throughout our lives. Many difficult situations, like the death of a loved one or the COVID-19 pandemic, are unavoidable. When our minds are healthy and strong, we are more resilient to life’s challenges, able to use healthy coping methods, have better relationships, maintain our overall health and well-being, and prevent chronic illnesses. That’s why it is important to be proactive about our mental health! Check out these videos in English and Spanish to see examples of families having conversations about mental health in their daily lives!
Spotlight on Loneliness and Isolation
As National PTA and Learning Heroes’ recent poll—A Year Into the Pandemic: Parents’ Perspectives on Academics, Assessments and Education— found, “more than 7 in 10 parents (72%) indicated they worried ‘a lot’ or ‘some’ about their child missing out on important social interactions at school or with friends, more than any other issue/topic.” Check out these resources to better understand what loneliness and isolation can look like and what your family can do about it.
What is Loneliness & Isolation? (documento en español) – Strengthen your understanding of loneliness and isolation and learn about their risk factors.
Loneliness & Isolation Assessment Tool (documento en español) – Use this form to determine your child's risk factors for loneliness and isolation symptoms, and if they need help.
If you need more support, please reach out to your child’s counselor at Crockett or check the PTA Healthy Minds: Community Resource Finder.
