Child Development and Mental Health in the Context of the Global Pandemic Date: Monday, January 31st Time: 7:00 to 8:00 pm. The recent surge of Omicron and the ongoing stress of managing our lives with COVID has left our families feeling anxious and exhausted. To help our community, Duveneck, Walter Hayes, and Addison PTA’s have partnered together for a Parent Education event on January 31st focused on mental health. In this talk, local clinical psychologist Dr. Jenna Rinsky will discuss how this pandemic is specifically affecting our children and how we as parents can support them and ourselves during this time. We hope you can join us!
