The impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic is worldwide. The primary focus to date has been on protecting physical health and safety, and rightly so. 

While grappling with physical health and safety challenges, it is increasingly clear that we need to also devote attention to our mental health needs. Calls to hotlines and other services have reportedly increased, as have rates of anxiety, depression, and at-risk behaviors. In our culture we are excellent at attending to needs from “the neck down”—we also need to be attentive to our needs from “the neck up.”

“Teens, Tweens & Quarantines” is a presentation for parents and caregivers, focusing on the impact of COVID-19 on our children. In a dynamic fashion, this talk will address the teen/tween brain, explain why this pandemic is so difficult for this age group, survey the process of loss, discuss issues related to independence, autonomy, and privacy, and offer perspectives and suggestions that parents and caregivers can implement immediately. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and get concrete answers for practical steps they can take in real time—who has time to wait?

About Minding Your Mind

Minding Your Mind’s primary objective is to provide mental health education to adolescents, teens and young adults, their parents, teachers and school administrators. Our goal is to reduce the stigma and destructive behaviors often associated with mental health issues. Treatment is available, yet only 3 out of 10 individuals needing help actually seek help. Minding Your Mind Programs move away from crisis-based response to prevention through education.
