Now that we are in a pandemic, a lot of people tend to think that their mental health issues are being caused by it. When we have children who are online with their distance learning it can be detrimental to their mental health because of lack of socialization.
When you are interacting with someone through the computer, make sure to really speak to them and ask them how they are doing. You also don't want to forget the parents, this is difficult for them as well.
Most Americans have the belief that the corona virus is harming their mental health.
Children aren't just losing academically, they are losing time with friends and family members.
We can look beyond the camera, and really ask the students how they are doing with all of this.
"In addition, many children experienced parents losing their jobs, or friends or relatives becoming sick. It is no surprise that one of the most important things schools can do right now is to provide social-emotional support to their students."
