COVID-19’s Impact on Anxiety in the School Setting

Students have spent the past year learning either virtually or in a hybrid format, many adjusting to the new normal of seeing their friends and teachers through a screen. The constantly changing learning environment and lack of predictability combined with the many uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic have resulted in higher levels of anxiety and fear for both children and adolescents alike. Mental health professionals are calling upon parents and guardians to help prepare their child emotionally and mentally to return to school.

Join Catherine Shull, PMHNP-BC, MEd, RN, Family Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner at Vanderbilt Health, on Thursday, May 20, 12-1 p.m. CDT as she helps parents and families learn:

  • New observations regarding mental health challenges in the school setting during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Signs of anxiety to look for in children and adolescents
  • Practical coping strategies to support a child who is experiencing anxiety
  • Tips and tricks for improved sleep when returning to school
  • Potential warning signs of behavioral health concerns and home safety recommendations
