According to Mental Health America, young people are experiencing more anxiety and depression related to the pandemic than any other age group.
Heading back to school is always a stress-filled time for parents and kids, and for this coming school year, going back to school includes the added stress of coming out of isolation.
In Central Ohio, parents can find support and resources at Safe Harbor Peer Support Services
. In a group or one on one, parents can talk to others who understand the concerns for their child’s stress and mental health.
Just drop in to one of Safe Harbor’s two centers, located in Delaware and Morrow counties, and get a feel for the center and its services and groups. In addition to peer support and programs, a nutritious lunch is served daily, and county-wide transportation is offered free of charge.
Or call and set up a time to meet with a staff member one on one.
