From increased depression, anxiety, worry, and trauma symptoms to fear related to “post covid” reentry, racial injustice, school shootings, and political unrest...... the last 18 months have taken a toll on kids’ mental, social-emotional, and physical health.
We’ve done our best to navigate these rapidly changing and unsettling events ... And now we have the opportunity to get it right, prioritize our young client’s needs, and set them on a path for successful reentry!
But how do you put a plan in place when each child’s needs are unique? How do you tackle mental health,
social-emotional well-being, and academic concerns when they’re all a priority?
That’s why we’ve gathered the leading voices, including Dan Siegel, Stephen Porges, Ana Gomez, Mona Delahooke, Lynn Lyons, and more, to break it all down so we can power through this together!

Ideas for heading back to school from PBS Kids!
This past school year was unusual. But with students heading back to school, there's a lot we can do to bolster our children’s feelings of confidence and security as they head into a new year. Here are ways to get in the back-to-school mindset and cope with any anxieties or emotions.
Some kids are more hard-wired for anxious thoughts and feelings than others. While some level of anxiety affects most people, high levels of anxiety can be disruptive to both the child and the whole family.
Plan Ahead: Back-to-School Checklist
Help your child prepare for school by practicing skills such as getting ready in the morning, packing a backpack, and knowing transportation plans for getting to and from school each day.
And much more!!!
