In the wake of global pandemic health concerns, disease spread prevention is on most of our minds. In partnership with MedGlobal, No Limit Gen’s just-published child well-being training videos feature Dr. Henna Qureshi as she highlights the practical steps and precautions we can all take to prevent the spread of disease. For children in vulnerable communities, Dr. Qureshi further addresses the impact of toxic stress; helps us understand healthy development milestones; and offers advice for caregivers and parents on how to create safe, stable, and healing environments for children.
Toxic stress on children leads to bigger mental problems like PTSD, anxiety and depression. The stress itself can weaken the child’s immune system and make them more vulnerable to chronic illnesses. The child can suffer from developmental delays and isolation.
