A Family Recovery Program to Support Child Mental Health During and After COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to an increase in children’s mental health problems, which may have lasting implications for their physical and mental health as adults. This is due to the social impact of the pandemic on family life, particularly the significant stress and burden on parents.

Her study will evaluate a new COVID-19 Family Recovery Program with the aim of reducing child mental health problems by strengthening relationships and reducing conflicts in families.
