The Psychology Foundation of Canada (PFC) is a registered charity with a 45+ year history of nurturing resilience in children and youth giving them a solid foundation of mental health before problems or issues may begin.
The COVID-19 pandemic is posing both a physical and emotional threat to our children. It is of the utmost importance to contain the spread. The measures in place of social distancing and self-isolation pose another pandemic: a mental health pandemic with fear, anxiety, stress symptomology spreading as quickly as the virus. While the physical virus seems to impact children least, the mental health repercussions likely impact our children the most. Let’s take this opportunity to build our children’s resilience and ease the effects this pandemic will have on their mental health.
