How will this continued state of isolation during the pandemic affect the long-term mental health of children in California?
We explored this question and discussed the impact of this unprecedented time on our state’s youth. CalMatters mental health reporter Jocelyn Wiener moderated the conversation about the potential long-term effects of COVID-19 on mental health, what behaviors to watch for in your child and how to help them cope with the stress of the pandemic.
This event took place on Thursday, August 20.
