CalMatters hosts a conversation on the long-term impact of the pandemic on the mental health of kids in California.

About this Event

How will this continued state of isolation during the pandemic affect the long-term mental health of children in California?

If you’re a parent, teacher, care provider or guardian, join us as we explore this question and discuss the impact of this unprecedented time on our state’s youth.

CalMatters health and welfare reporter Elizabeth Aguilera will moderate the conversation about the potential long-term effects of COVID-19 on mental health, what behaviors to watch for in your child and how to help them cope with the stress of the pandemic.

This discussion will be structured around our participants. We’d love to hear from you before we meet.
