As family well-being declines, so does children’s behavior – Harvard Health Blog

The COVID-19 pandemic is bad not only for our physical health, but our mental health as well. It has killed thousands of people and disrupted our lives in terrible ways. So it’s not surprising that a recent survey finds that parents in the US are having a hard time.

Researchers did a national survey in June of 2020 of more than 1,000 parents with children under the age of 18, asking questions about mental health, insurance coverage, food security, child care, and use of health care. They found that compared to before March of 2020,

  • 27% reported worsening mental health for themselves

  • Moderate to severe food insecurity rose by a third, going from 6% to 8%
  • Employee-sponsored health care went down only slightly, from 63% to 60%

  • 40% reported cancellations or delays in their child’s health care, most commonly well-child care but also specialty and behavioral health care.
