COVID-19 has caused everyone to adjust to new circumstances but has created even greater challenges for students of all ages.
Whether they’re transitioning to learning at home or have moved home from college, there are many adjustments for students to make to successfully maintain their well-being, continue their education, and find balance during this public health crisis.
Caitlin M. Nevins, PhD, director of psychological services for McLean’s College Mental Health Program, discusses considerations for students and families during this time, the impact of student identities, strategies to ease student transitions into at-home education, and ways to maintain their mental health and well-being.
In a presentation on May 7, 2020, Dr. Nevins shared considerations to make for better mental health as well as resources to help ease the tumultuousness of the pandemic’s effect on education for both parents and students.
