NSLAP WELLNESS: Back to School Support for Kids

"Back-to-school previously signaled a time of renewal and change, exciting most students and families as they prepared for the new school year. In 2020, that excitement has been coupled with anxiety and in some instances fear for parents, kids, teachers and others who work in and around schools. They may be apprehensive, anxious or even fearful of returning to an environment of uncertainty and evolving changes. These feelings can be amplified for younger students or with pre-existing medical or mental health concerns. Students may be highly sensitive to additional policies or procedures if anyone in their life has been directly or indirectly impacted by COVID-19.

Homewood Health, in collaboration with our good friends at Kids Help Phone, is pleased to offer additional support to students who may be experiencing fear, anxiety, or difficulty related to the start of the new school year and the complexities raised by COVID-19. Support through Kids Help Phone is available 24/7/365 via text, telephone and live chat.  Attached you will find some really useful information to share with the young people in your life who may be experiencing stress, anxiety or trepidation about their return to school."
