Children’s Mental Health during Coronavirus

TJ’s Place of Hope attended an incredibly informative webinar about how to help youth during this virus and isolation… given by Baltimore Child Abuse Center. With their permission we are sharing this news!!!


“Most children will manage well with the support of parents and other family members, even if showing signs of some anxiety or concerns, such as difficulty sleeping or concentrating. Some children, however, may have risk factors for more intense reactions, including severe anxiety, depression, and suicidal behaviors. Risk factors can include a pre-existing mental health problem, prior traumatic experiences or abuse, family instability, or the loss of a loved one.” BCAC Presentation
