Responding to the mental health and psychosocial impact of COVID-19 on children and families
Unicef, October 2020 Children thrive when they feel safe and protected, when family and community connections are stable, and when their basic needs are met. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted many of the foundations that assure children’s mental health and wellbeing. This child protection learning brief examines different strategies to deliver mental health and psychosocial support within different sectors and across different contexts. It is intended to assist UNICEF country offices and practitioners as they respond to the impact of COVID-19 on children and families.
