According to Child Psychologists, the lockdown, which has entered its 3rd year has had a profound impact on children. Research shows that feelings of helplessness, loneliness, and fear of being separated from loved ones are common in any pandemic, while prolonged stress, boredom, and social isolation, as well as a lack of outdoor play, can lead to a higher number of mental health conditions in children, such as anxiety and even depression.
If your child is showing sudden changes in behaviour, such as unusual persistent sadness, excessive worry, a lack of concentration, trouble sleeping, or exhaustion, which could point towards looming mental health issues such as depression. We want to help our students through the guidance of our school counsellor.
If your child is showing any of the signs and behaviour mentioned above, please contact your respective class teachers. They will be able to help you get in contact with the school counsellor.
