As in the spring, Covid-19 outbreaks have caused the suspension of in-person learning at schools across Colorado, from elementary schools up to the state's colleges. These life disruptions are taking their toll, with national research demonstrating Colorado is not alone in struggling to adjust to life with Covid-19. In a new UCLA study, more than 3 in 4 school-based social workers reported that a majority of their students and families had "profound, immediate, and urgent needs" related to mental health services.
"The concern is that students and parents dealing with all the uncertainty in their lives and schedules now will suffer silently," said psychologist Glen Most, executive director at West Pines Behavioral Health and also a member of the Metro Denver Partnership for Health. "When you're down – and we all have these moments – it's important to reach out to friends, family, or professionals for support."
