How are our children adapting to life under quarantine? What can we do to help? Watch our founder, Dr. Valentina Stoycheva, as she discussed the impact of COVID-19 on children of different ages and provides practical tips on how we can help protect our families’ mental health during social isolation.

This video, recorded as part of The Mentor Project’s series 1-Hour Mentor  discussed the impact of COVID-19 from a developmental perspective. It also focuses on how children’s inherent resilience can be harnessed to help them not just cope but thrive.
