A vast majority of children never open up about sexual abuse, thinking it was their fault or realize only too late that what was happening to them was abuse. Most people tend to dismiss sexual abuse incidents as random occurrences, which are not necessarily indicative of the society at large.

Psychosocial Support For Children During COVID-19

Psychosocial Support For Children

It is natural for children to feel stress, anxiety, grief, and worry during an ongoing pandemic like COVID-19. Fear and anxiety about their own health and the health of loved ones can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions. Children also access different kinds of information and news through social media and digital platforms, some of them may not be factually true, causing further stress and anxiety. It is enhanced when children are not able to go out, play, attend school or interact freely. For those children and families who are subjected to quarantine or isolation there may be an increased risk of violence and abuse. When stress levels go up for adults and children, there is a greater risk of gender based violence and other forms of violence against children.
