The COVID-19 global pandemic has upended nearly every aspect of our lives. Quarantined at home, we are cut off from family, friends, and everyday routines with no sense of when it will end. For parents and kids alike, these months of isolation and uncertainty have led to high levels of stress and anxiety, challenging us to find ways to adapt to this evolving adversity. As we enter a new school year and forge new routines this fall, Richard A. Friedman, M.D., will discuss some of the mental health concerns associated with the pandemic.
