Back to School Series, Part 1: Nurturing kids' mental well-being
Over the last year and a half, kids have faced pandemic-related stress (such as wearing a mask, remote school, lack of in-person play with friends) in addition to the typical child and adolescent stressors.
So when it comes to kids' mental health, who should parents ask for help? How can parents create a special connection with their kids? How can a parent tell whether their child’s mental health challenge is serious?
In episode 22, "Nurturing kids' mental well-being," host Mark D. Gomez, M.D. and his guests, Jyoti Shah, D.O., a child/adolescent and adult psychiatrist with Linden Oaks Medical Group, and Susy Francis Best, PsyD, MBA, with Thrive Group International, have an important conversation about mental health and the role parents can play in helping their kids develop and maintain a healthy mental outlook.
