    Mental health issues like anxiety, depression, or eating disorders among kids and adolescents have been on the rise since the beginning of the pandemic. Many educators, pediatricians, and mental health providers are calling the situation a crisis.

    In their weekly conversation, psychologist Dan Gottlieb and WHYY’s Maiken Scott discuss what families can do to help kids navigate these difficult times.
