One Year Later: Back-to-School Anxiety During COVID-19 – Shrinking It Down

By  and 

Posted in: Hot TopicsMultimediaPodcasts

Topics: COVID-19 + Family Mental HealthStress

During the pandemic, many kids across the country have been doing most or all of their schooling online. But now, a year later, many communities are finally finding ways to bring kids back to school, in person. While it’s largely agreed on that in-person schooling is critical for child and teen positive mental health and social-emotional development, going back comes with new concerns and COVID-19 anxiety for kids, parents, and teachers alike.

In this episode of Shrinking It Down, Gene and Khadijah share insights from their clinical practice as child psychiatrists on supporting the mental health of your family with some of these mid-year “back-to-school” challenges.

Thank you for joining in this conversation. Do you have anxieties or concerns about sending your kids back to school during Covid? We’d love to know. Write to us!

“When Kolbi Brown joined All of Us at NYC Health + Hospitals Harlem in 2017, he wasn’t just starting a new job. He was changing careers. Kolbi had worked in real estate and property management for about 10 years, mostly in Harlem. He saw the issues that people around him were facing—including health problems. And he started to wonder what he could do to help the community where he lived and worked. “All of Us came along,” he says, “and gave me the opportunity to be a part of something that will be really meaningful.”
