Service Description

The unspoken horror behind the pandemic is suicide, depression, illness, physical and mental degradation with a loss of interest in real living. Social isolation leads to higher levels of cortisol and worse cognitive development. Therefore, the mental and physical health of children and adolescents need a careful follow up by health professionals during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. Studies show that this isolation situation influences people's daily behavior, causing anxiety, fear, depression, and panic. It is increasingly recognized that individuals who experience social isolation are at increased risk of disease. Adverse psychosocial experiences, such as social isolation, can be particularly harmful to developing children and adolescents. Social distancing can aggravate or generate functional and behavioral difficulties in this age group. It is also noted that this stress scenario alters physical activity and sleep, essential for general development. There is ample evidence that these factors have a profound impact on brain plasticity and, therefore, on cognitive and emotional development. Thus, the physical and mental health of children and adolescents should be a point of attention. This course helps to bridge the gap from social isolation due to the pandemic and other social issues plaguing our youth. Life changing for kids of all ages!
