New Hope 4 Hurting Kids Covid-19 Page
At Hope 4 Hurting Kids, we are pleased to announce the launch of our new:
While we would prefer never to have had to put this page together, we felt we owed it to the young people suffering through these unprecedented events to offer a site full of resources and information about Covid-19 as well as dealing with emotional fallout that comes from both changing circumstances and a lack of information.
Over just last week in the United States where I am:
- Reported infections have sky-rocketed.
- Every state has reported cases of Covid-19.
- Deaths have continued to rise.
- Schools and Universities have closed.
- Sports Leagues and entertainment venues have closed.
- Restaurants and stores have closed.
- Elections have been postponed.
- States of Emergency have been declared.
- Vacations have been canceled.
- Information has flooded tv screens, phones and social media.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, and much of the world has seen the same.
Make no mistake, kids are likely feeling anxiety and stress about the Coronavirus whether they have expressed it or not. They likely know more about it than you think, and chances are they have some misinformation about the virus and the efforts to slow and prevent it. Furthermore, if kids have suffered another trauma in their lives (like death, divorce or any other loss of a close family member), they are likely feeling this latest turn of events even more acutely. Through Hope 4 Hurting Kids and my work with Divorce Care 4 Kids, I have spent years helping kids deal with the impacts of trauma and anxiety in their lives.
At Hope 4 Hurting Kids, our hope is that this new page, and the articles we will publish on the topic over the next weeks and months will help to provide some measure of relief.
If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
