The Check-In: Student Mental Health

Apr 21, 2020

This strange, new way we’re living can be a shock to even the most responsible and well-adjusted adult. But for kids of all ages who are suddenly torn from the stability and routine of a school day, it can be a huge strain on their mental health.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, students who are accustomed to structure are now left without any. And while the school year continues on in a new way, keeping focused on academics can be incredibly difficult.

Our guests:

Melissa Maras, a clinical-community psychologist, research consultant at the MU School of Education.

Dr. Christopher Sampson, MU Emergency Medicine physician.

To hear the live show, tune in weekdays at noon. Also, you can leave us a voicemail at 877-532-0971 about how you are handling the isolation during the coronavirus pandemic.
