How is the stress of COVID-19 impacting the well-being of young people? As educators struggle to maintain safe learning environments, many of the emotional effects of the pandemic linger. And for some, the stress of uncertainty is compounded by the overwhelm of the return to in-person learning and the weight of academic expectations. Add the larger concerns about climate change and the politically divisive atmosphere, and you get what could be called an anxious generation.
On Thursday, November 18th, Oregon Public Broadcasting hosts Call to Mind Live: How Youth Are Coping with Anxiety & Stress, a Well Beings Tour Event. We explore how youth in Oregon are coping — what’s making them feel anxious, what’s making them feel better, and how the individuals and institutions in their lives can support their resilience.
WELL BEINGS is a major national campaign from WETA addressing health needs in America with a focus on youth mental health.
“Think Out Loud” host Dave Miller will lead a conversation with a local high school counselor, educators, high school students, and others about what’s making youth today feel anxious, how they deal with it, and how the individuals and institutions in their lives can support their resilience. Audience members for the virtual event will have the opportunity to submit written questions and comments for the guests.
We hope you take this opportunity to join OPB for an informative chat!
