Safe Kids Now Calls on Parents to Step Up
LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / December 9, 2021 / The COVID-19 pandemic turned the world upside down and created chaos in the lives of families all over the United States. Parents juggled homeschooling children with work-from-home arrangements, lockdowns and faced the daily task of keeping their families safe from the deadly virus.
Some signs of normalcy have returned, but recent statistics show kids are still struggling mentally and emotionally. The need for mental health intervention is more important than ever before. According to The Children’s Hospital Association, in the first six months of 2021, children’s hospitals nationwide reported a 45% increase in self-injury and suicide cases in 5-to-17-year-olds compared to the same period in 2019.
