COVID-19 Updates: State of public health emergency declared.
The Child and Youth Well-being Review was established to better understand the full scope of the psychological, social, educational and physical effects related to the COVID-19 pandemic on children and youth.
The panel engaged with a wide range of Albertans, including researchers, educators, health care professionals, and mental health experts, as well as parents and kids.
COVID-19 has affected all aspects of life for children and youth from every culture and community. The panel will learn from experts on ways to ensure children and youth have the tools they need to process and cope in healthy ways.
