CME Activity: Addressing the Mental Health Challenges of the Impact of COVID-19 on Children and Families
The pandemic has heightened the awareness of both physical and mental/behavioral concerns in the children and adolescent populations in the state of New Jersey. It has been over a year since Coronavirus has created the challenges families face, including illness, loss of employment, financial problems, lack of food, closed schools and loss of life. It has all taken a tremendous toll on our youth from a social, emotional and academic perspective. Children coping with trauma, illness and disruption will need more than the vaccine to work through the repercussions of this ordeal.
