Addressing Child Trauma Caused by COVID-related Crises
May 9, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Faith and Advocacy Network, the newest community ministry of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, invites you to join a virtual class focusing on how citizen advocates and legislators came together to forge a bipartisan coalition of concern that resulted in major new investments in behavioral health programs, school-based counseling, and expanded Medicaid coverage for children in greatest need.
Children, who have been largely invisible and voiceless participants in the crisis enveloping their families, were lifted up by legislators as a group deserving of special attention and support. Parental job loss, housing and income instability, academic and social disruptions, and increased isolation were cited as major causes of stress and emotional disturbance.
