This interactive, web-based learning model is specifically aimed at supporting educators and other child-serving professionals in adjusting to needs of preschool and young elementary school-aged children due to mental health concerns brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and associated stressors. While every child has had a difference experience with the COVID-19 pandemic and its associated stressors, we know that the impact on children’s mental health, their routines and their relationships has been significant. We also know that those working most closely with children have taken on multitudes of extra stress during this time. Our goal is to showcase expert panel members discussing topics related to young children’s mental health and secondary stress, as well as offer an opportunity for child-serving professionals to discuss de-identified cases and scenarios and receive peer support.
