2021 Children’s Mental Health Report

In light of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Child Mind Institute recently released a report on children’s mental health. This report examines ongoing research, including a survey of thousands of parents conducted by Child Mind Institute.

Additional Information

Key takeaways from the report include:

  • Children’s moods during the pandemic were most closely related to the lifestyle changes they’d experienced.
  • Children’s mental health three months before the pandemic began was the factor more closely correlated with their mental health during the pandemic.
  • There is a connection between economic hardship and mental health outcomes.

The full report can be accessed on the Child Mind Institute website. Additionally, tips for caregivers and educators on how to support mental health and learning are available for download.
