For our first meeting of the new year, the DWS Parent Council was joined by School Counselor Jenny Thompson to discuss mental health through Covid-19 for both students and parents. Her presentation covered:

  • Mental health trends she’s seeing related to how COVID is affecting children
  • Tips to parents about how we can be one step ahead of these problems
  • Ways parents might engage in self care.

Following the mental health presentation and live Q&A, parents broke out into smaller groups by their children’s ages. Scroll down to watch the recorded meeting and presentation. Or visit Jenny’s Corner to access tips for parents and students, mental health resources, and more!
