HealthDay Now: The COVID-19 Pandemic and Its Effects on the Mental Health of Children
Watch our latest HealthDay Now as we take a look at how living through the COVID-19 pandemic impacts children socially, mentally and emotionally.

Mabel Jong from our liveblog team speaks with:
- Dr. Mark Reinecke, Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Northwestern University
- Tracy Compton, a parent
- Stephen Guerriero, a teacher
- Jake Anderson, a student
