The pandemic has brought serious problems in the normal development of children, which has set off alarms in parents and mental health professionals given the recurrent cases of minors with mental health problems.
However, for what is said by different experts, the pandemic shows a problem that has been hiding in children for years: mental health. Therefore, attention must be paid to the symptoms of depression, anxiety, and sadness, that have become normalized among parents and society in general, to turn on the alarms to find support for this population.
“The pandemic’s disruptions have led to lost learning, social isolation and widespread mental-health problems for children.”David Leonhardt
