Supporting Children and Adolescents’ Mental Health in the Context of Pandemic and Confinement: A Scoping Review of Interventions and Ethical Challenges
- Children and adolescents living in a family that is economically affected by the pandemic are more vulnerable to having negative effects on their mental health.
- The context of the pandemic and related confinement can increase maltreatment and interfamilial violence.
- Equitable access to child and adolescent mental health care is an important ethical challenge.
- Telehealth is the most widespread intervention put in place and the use of technology is the most widespread recommendation in order to offer remote services. However, technology-based services can be difficult to access for children living in families with a low socio-economic status. Privacy and confidentiality can be difficult to respect.
- Preventative care is more limited due to the pandemic, which could be problematic if sustained over time.
