COVID-19: Resources for Parents and Teens

The COVID-19 pandemic has created many new stressors for teens and their families. SAHM has assembled resources addressing several topics including: reliable sources of information about protecting oneself from COVID-19; teen mental health and coping; parenting and caring for one’s family; resources for online education; guide to discussing social distancing; and sexual health considerations. We hope these resources are helpful to you, and encourage you to share them through your networks.

SAHM recommends that teens and their families review the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) websites for the most up to date information about COVID-19.

The CDC’s COVID-19 website provides detailed information about how to protect yourself and others, what to do if you think you are sick, and more.

The WHO’s COVID-19 website provides information about protecting yourself and others from getting sick, protection measures for those who have visited areas where COVID-19 is spreading, coping with stress, and more.

We also recommend the American Academy of Pediatrics’ healthychildren.org website for information about COVID-19.
