The Impact of COVID-19 on the Mental Well-Being of Teens and What Teens Need to do Well webinar, led by Susan Gross, will share the impacts of the pandemic on teen mental health, what we are hearing in the news and what the surveys are telling us.

Susan will use a developmental lens to view typical behaviours of youth to inform us why this pandemic has been so challenging for them, but also to help us reflect on what it is they need and how we can support them. We will hear some reflections from the parent and caregiver perspective as well as from a youth perspective.

Resources, information, and tools will be shared with parents, caregivers and youth. Attendees will also have an opportunity to ask questions. Please note: this webinar will be recorded.

This virtual event is jointly hosted by the Wellington Catholic District School Board, Upper Grand District School Board, Canadian Mental Health Association, Waterloo, Wellington Branch, Parents for Children’s Mental Health, The ACEs Coalition of Guelph & Wellington and the Waterloo Region District School Board.
