Nearly two years after COVID changed our world, it’s time to checkup on kids! Children and families are still reeling from the social, emotional, and mental health toll of the pandemic. Many without access to quality health coverage and care. The situation is especially alarming in Idaho, where nearly one in five Idaho teens reported experiencing major depression in the last year, and two-thirds of those teens received no treatment at all. As we move forward, it’s important to look at health trends and opportunities in the coming year to support the growth of healthy kids.
It’s time to check up on our kids and give them a shot at the bright future that they deserve. Join us on Wednesday, March 16th for Idaho Kids Covered’s “Checkup on Kids” Day at the Idaho State Capitol.
