VIRTUAL MORNING MATTERS 2021
Nurturing youth to resiliency in a socially distanced world
Wednesday, May 12, 2021 | 8:00 AM – 9:00 AM
Since early 2020, youth have faced mandatory social isolation in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. They have been physically separated from their peers, teachers, extended families, and community support networks. Social distancing has required them to find another way ‘to connect’ with each other. We have yet to see the long-term effects of loneliness and depression on the mental and behavioral health of our youth.
Morning Matters 2021 will be a virtual event, hosted by experts in the field of children’s mental health. We will address tactics to foster our youth to overcome challenges brought on by social isolation and to build coping skills for a lifetime.
Amoskeag Health delivers primary health care and wrap-around services to over 6,000 children who live in Greater Manchester. Regardless of ability to pay, children aged 0-21 have access to wellness check-ups, annual eye exams, behavioral therapy, and mental health visits. Our teens also have access to programs to learn about healthy relationships, sexuality, and positive adolescent development for physical and emotional well-being.
Please RSVP to Mary Littlejohn by May 3rd, 2021.
