Mental Health Resources for Parents and Caregivers During COVID-19
Apr 7, 2020
In response to the recent pandemic (COVID-19), several national organizations and associations have shared and promoted resources to assist parents and caregivers with how to prepare the family for an outbreak, techniques to reduce the risk of contracting the virus, coping strategies for dealing with stress, and helping children cope. As part of the Mountain Plains Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (MHTTC), Shawnda Schroeder of the Center for Rural Health helped create Mental Health Resources for Parents and Caregivers during COVID-19, which compiles all recent toolkits, guides, tip sheets, and infographics that have been developed by reputable sources to assist parents and caregivers during this time.
The Mountain Plains MHTTC also has a dedicated webpage to current mental health resources related to COVID-19. The page is organized by topic and includes resources for mental health providers, housing resources, products for educators, and resources for parents among others.
