CoAction Against COVID-19

Screening, evaluation and intervention in children's mental health problems in the pandemic context

Children stand out as a risk group regarding the adverse effects on mental health resulting from COVID-19, increasing the risk or aggravating existing situations of lack of protection in socioeconomic, family or foster care dimensions. It has already been shown that loss, fear and stress, strongly associated with COVID-19, aggravate existing mental health problems and contribute to a higher incidence of anxiety and stress-related disorders.

To respond to the expected increase in mental health problems in children during the COVID-19 pandemic, this community intervention project aims to:

  1. Screen and assess mental health problems in children from 3-10 years that are attending public schools in the municipality of Guimarães;
  2. Specialized, individualized and free psychological intervention for those children that present mental health problems.
