Mental health is inclusive to all, however, this video covers the effect of the pandemic on children and youth under the age of 12. Although children may be unable to fully grasp the concept of their mental health and wellbeing, restrictions posed by public health protocols have taken away aspects of their life, just like any other member of the community.
We urge you to keep watching this video for some insight on home safety, transition to online learning, nutrition and exercise, the impact on special needs children, video games, and many more environmental factors that impair a child’s mental health and physical perception of the world around them.
We also provide an outline of a prominent resource developed by SickKids called CARD. This system allows parents and caregivers to make a personalized system for children to make their routine during the pandemic a little less difficult.
