As the Omicron and Deltacron Variant Sweep the world prolonging the COVID 19 global pandemic, parents need support now more than ever amidst an ongoing mental health crisis. Since the spring of 2020, nearly half of parents (48%) said the level of stress in their life has increased compared with before the pandemic. Similarly, (31%) adults reporting that their mental health has worsened compared with before the pandemic. (75%) of polled that they could have used more emotional support than they received since the pandemic started, with 82% of fathers stated they were significantly more likely to say they could have used more emotional support than mothers at 68%. Parental Mental Health Awareness Day will highlight the concerns parents are facing. It will also drive conversations around the importance of self-care, and serve to provide resources and peer support for parents who are facing burnout.
On March 3rd, Wingwomen, and our partners will highlight statistics around how parents and their mental health has been impacted during the pandemic. Additionally, some partners will share methods to manage stress and overwhelm, and encourage parents to seek support from mental health professionals. All partners will also be listed in a searchable directory on the Wingwomen platform, making it easy for parents to search advocates and professionals to help them manage their care.
