Child and Adolescent Mental Health During COVID-19

Child and Adolescent Mental Health During COVID-19

September Webinar | Child Adolescent Mental Health Webinar with Dr Leila Masson


We'd like to invite you to our upcoming webinar Child and Adolescent Mental Health During COVID-19 with Dr Leila Masson on Wednesday 30th September. These monthly webinars are FREE for ACNEM Members. 

In this webinar, Leila will discuss the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on young people’s mental health and offer practical tips on what families can do to counter these.

For example, children in social isolation may produce less oxytocin and be in constant sympathetic overdrive. There are a myriad of lifestyle and nutritional interventions to increase oxytocin, to decrease adrenaline and stress, and shift children and adolescents into a parasympathetic “rest and digest" balance.

There will be opportunity for Q&A at the end of the session.

All people registered for the webinar will receive access to the recording following the live event.
