VIEW EVENT RECORDING

The world around us has been radically transformed by the spread of the coronavirus. For children with mental health and learning disorders and their families, the uncertainty, anxiety and disruption of daily life caused by the virus have been especially severe. The Child Mind Institute is committed to being there for families who are struggling, but we need your help.

On September 15, we held our first-ever virtual Back to School Luncheon. Every dollar raised will support accessible mental health care and resources for children, parents and educators as they navigate yet another transition this coming school year.

Parenting experts Madeline Levine, PhD, Stephanie Lee, PsyD and Ali Wentworth shared practical solutions on how parents can decrease pressure and help children to build skills that help them thrive, like adaptability, resilience and tolerance for failure.
