Helping Kids Bounce Back Amid COVID-19

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

A new study conducted in cooperation with SickKids hospital has found that mental health for children and teens is declining due to prolonged experience with isolation, online learning, and the general anxiety a public health crisis brings. We invite youth psychologist Sheri Turrell, child and youth psychiatrist Javeed Sukhera, and Katherine Hay, president and CEO of Kids Help Phone help navigate us through the gravity of the situation and what can be done when the demand for help exceeds the capacity. What is the ability of this cohort to bounce back as the pandemic starts to ease up?
