Child Mind Institute 2021 Children’s Mental Health Report
In this report, Child Mind Institute examines the growing body of research on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on children’s mental health, including the results of a survey of thousands of parents conducted by the Child Mind Institute. Initial findings supported the idea that children and adults alike were experiencing higher levels of emotional distress.

November is Family Caregivers Month, a time to celebrate the contributions of caregivers, provide them with tools that they need, and continue to advocate for individuals with mental illness.
