Mental Health at Child Care Institutions during COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a significant impact in all areas of life. While we grapple with the health and economic impact of the pandemic, its profound effect on our mental health remains under-addressed. This is especially true for children, who often remain silent victims of any calamity.
As we closely work with children residing in Child Care Institutions (CCI), we have been able to observe the pandemic’s impact on their mental health as well as the mental health of the caregivers that work closely with them. To address this and shed more light on the issue we developed a guide documenting our observations and suggestions of practical strategies that can be used.
