For the Child Mind Institute, it's been a year like no other

A Year Like No Other:
How the Child Mind Institute Is Transforming Lives

The coronavirus stopped the world in its tracks, causing stress and anxiety for everyone.

As the crisis forced much of the United States to shut down, the Child Mind Institute pivoted in all mission areas. Our clinics in New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area converted patients to telehealth; our editorial staff produced new content on COVID-19 and mental health; our researchers developed tools and technologies to garner information that will lead to more effective interventions; and our Student Success Program responded to increased anxiety, grief and loss in school communities.

Below are stories detailing the impact the Child Mind Institute has had throughout the year.
