More than a year into the pandemic, our kids are not alright - Salon

With appropriate attention and intervention, however, parents can protect their children and get them the help they need.

Anxiety rates in children and teens have skyrocketed, as emergency room visits for pediatric mental health concerns rose by over 70%.

Pediatricians are now seeing more kids with mental health issues than ever before; the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently released a policy encouraging doctors to screen for mental health issues at every visit.

The good news is that parents can form the first line of defense between children and mental health problems, even during these times of unprecedented change.

Habits that help our physical health — getting lots of exercise, sleeping the right amount at night, eating healthy foods — also help with depression and anxiety.

Help your kids get outside as much as possible; exposure to nature alone can improve mental health!

And one oft-overlooked aspect of prevention of anxiety, depression, and mental health issues is self-care.

The AAP has a wide variety of resources to help parents with mental health, and they can also help if you're looking for therapy.

In the meantime, however, we can act right now to help our kids weather the mental health pandemic, help our families build resilience, and enjoy just being kids.
