Dr. Jaleel Abdul-Adil (University of Illinois) and Joseph Archer (Rush University Medical Center) will overview the impacts of remote learning and community violence on mental health the last year has had on families. Courtney Johnson (NAMI-Chicago) will share strategies for managing stress families can practice just in time for Spring Break. 

Children model the behaviors of the adults around them, including those related to managing stress. Caregivers who deal with stress in unhealthy ways risk passing those behaviors on to their children. Alternatively, caregivers who cope with stress in healthy ways promote better adjustment and happiness for themselves and promote essential habits and skills in children.

We are a year into the pandemic-with national and global events unparalleled in our lifetimes. Learn more about comprehensive, integrated, and coordinated care for multi-problem, high-risk youth affected by trauma and community violence. Parents know that changing a child’s behavior, let alone their own, can be challenging. By taking small, consistent steps to a healthier lifestyle, families can meet their psychological and physical goals.

In launching the new series Mental Help series, C2ST is pleased to partner with research experts and practitioners to offer support to specific communities such as the elderly, families, and professionals.
