How COVID-19 is Impacting Children

What to look for? 

*Most teens are likely to display one or two of these behaviors at some point in adolescence normally, but if these changes are happening more rapidly, more consistently, or are occurring at once, parents should discuss with their child’s doctor.

What to do? 

If you fear your child may be depressed or overwhelmed with anxiety, seek advice from your doctor. If you are worried your child may hurt themselves or others, please call 911 immediately. 

You can also contact the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Disaster Distress Helpline at 800-985-5990, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255 or text MHFA to 741741 to talk to a Crisis Text Line counselor. There are also online counselors your child may speak with.
