The Covid-19 Pandemic and the Child Mental Health Crisis: What We Can Do Now
There is a crisis in children's mental health that predates the pandemic, including increases in inpatient visits for suicidality, self-injury, depression and anxiety. Among children living below 100% of the federal poverty level more than 1 in 5 (22%) has a mental health need but only 20% of children who need care access mental health services. Latinx, immigrant and Black children are less likely to receive care. Disparities in child mental health are exacerbated during the covid-19 pandemic for communities of color and children living in poverty. This presentation will consider some of the root causes and potential responses to the current national emergency in child and adolescent mental health and how we can consider these in creating solutions. Recommendations for clinical and system of care approaches, youth and family driven responses, and innovation in practice will be discussed.
