Stress Management in Kids (S6:E12)

It’s no surprise that more and more kids are experiencing stress and anxiety –– especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. As kids get older, take on more responsibility and experience more changes in life, the impact of the youth mental health crisis becomes more apparent.

Listen to pediatric experts discuss stress management strategies in pediatrics

As part of our 12-episode mental health series, Jenna Glover, MD, and Jessica Hawks, MD, join us to discuss the post-pandemic stress that kids are experiencing and how providers can incorporate mental health strategies into their clinics, including the right questions to ask patients and their families.

In this episode, our experts discuss:

  • Post-pandemic stress and mental health observations
  • How social interactions are changing
  • The reliance on and potentially damaging impacts of digital technology and social media
  • How to help kids build resiliency and connect them to mental health services
  • The cumulative effect of adverse childhood experiences into adulthood
  • Conversation starters for pediatricians
  • A focus on the core foundations for mental and physical health: sleep hygiene, diet, physical activity and in-person connections
