Mental Health Crisis Among Children

Pediatricians say the mental health crisis among kids has become a national emergency

Our children are experiencing a mental health crisis — especially our BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) children — as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Our nation’s leading health experts have joined together to declare a national state of emergency in children’s mental health, and to call for increased funding for and access to mental wellness services for our children and youth. If your child is struggling, grieving, anxious, depressed, or just “not themself,” I can help.
