IMPACT OF COVID-19 …
Black and Latinx children have witnessed more illness and death during the pandemic than other kids. The mental health toll of Covid-19 is serious and likely long lasting. And as with other aspects of Covid-19, it is hitting communities of color the hardest. This pandemic has spotlighted racial and ethnic disparities in access to behavioral health care. Blacks and Latinos have substantially lower access to mental health and substance use treatment services.
Given the existing impediments to care for Blacks and Latinos due to social determinants of health, the COVID-19 pandemic will place those with behavioral health problems at even higher vulnerability. Blacks and Latinos have lower access to needed treatment and experience less culturally responsive care.
Black and Latinx children deserve a powerful response from all of us, clearly expressing that they are valued.

Brookview House in Boston offers free coding classes to girls who have experienced homelessness, in the hopes of garnering their interests in computer science and programming. Their experiences in the program have shaped their views on computer science, as well as their goals for the future. – The Christian Science Monitor
“Brookview helped me learn to communicate in English, recognized and nurtured my love of art. At first, I didn’t know how to speak English, and it was a big obstacle at school and in the community, so I needed to attend bilingual classes for two years. Now I go to regular classes; I have learned how to communicate in English very well. I joined the Teen Visionaries where I learned about domestic violence and tried photography for the first time. I also attended sculpture classes on Saturday mornings.” –Tania
