How can the COVID-19 outbreak affect the mental health of young children? Children respond to stressors in different ways depending upon their age, previous experiences, and the coping mechanisms that they typically use to manage stress. In the present situation, the emotional health of children might be impacted by: z Their awareness of stress experienced by those close to them. z Disruption of their regular structure and routine (school, playdates, physical connections, etc.). z The way information is presented to children. This can play a significant role in impacting their mental health. Giving incomplete or age-inappropriate information can contribute to greater levels of stress in children.
