COVID Is Fueling Children's Mental Health Emergency

Deaths of parents and other traumatic experiences have harmed hundreds and thousands of students. Although countable initiatives are attempting to assist bereaved families, yet emotional pain cannot be compensated. In view of this, a discussion took place in the University auditorium on the occasion of World Mental Health Day. 

When COVID disrupted the routine and resources that school and after-school care ordinarily provide, many children were left to face ongoing hazards at home, including parental issues such as intimate partner violence and substance misuse. Both of these problems significantly rose during the pandemic, Says Dr. Prena Gupa, TMU Senior Psychiatrist. 

So it now becomes pertinent to discuss these issues and communication is the key to get peace.
