Two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, children continue to face a variety of challenges and uncertainty about the future. The constant shifting of COVID restrictions as well as stress from political and social unrest has led to a mental health crisis that’s been recognized by the U.S. Surgeon General as critical.
When it comes to helping children find mental health care, parents face multiple barriers including long wait lists, limited providers, and high out-of-pocket costs. For working parents, the added stress of worrying about their child’s wellbeing and overcoming the barriers to finding care can be overwhelming. Employers have an important role to play in supporting working parents before they burn out.
In this conversation, you’ll learn:
- Why children’s mental health has reached such a critical stage
- How the mental health of children impacts working parents
- Proactive strategies for supporting working parents
