Celebrating our NHS and prioritising Children's Mental Health
It's been a tumultuous 2 years and as we make our way back to life post-pandemic, Connect Global Group will take time out to celebrate the good work of our NHS while acknowledging the impact that the pandemic has had on young children (KS2 7-11 years old)
While the rate of COVID-19 infection among young children and adolescents is low, there have been numerous cross-sectional studies conducted to analyse the impact on their little lives. The results of these studies show that the nature and extent of this impact depend on several vulnerability factors such as developmental age, educational status, pre-existing mental health conditions, being economically underprivileged, or being quarantined due to infection /fear of infection.
In response to this, we're highlighting charities that are taking a lead to tackle the rising children's mental health issues. We will also host 4 children (winners of our drawing contest) from across London, together with their parents and inspiring NHS Staff to enjoy 5-star hospitality and a matchday experience at our Executive Box at Stamford Bridge for a Premier League game this October.
"Addressing the consequences of the pandemic on the mental health of young people is crucial to help them recover faster from the COVID-19 crisis."
