Child Mental Health Education After The Covid-19 Pandemic
Keywords:Covid-19 pandemic and children's mental health
The Covid-19 pandemic is a disease outbreak that has spread not only in Indonesia but throughout the world. This
virus not only affects our physical health but also affects our mental health. Even though the government has now
declared Indonesia to be free of masks, it cannot be denied that the coronavirus is still among us. For this reason, it is
important to maintain good physical and mental health. During the pandemic, many people feel the consequences,
especially children who still don't understand what is going on. In addition, the lack of awareness of us or our parents
about mental health is a problem that must be faced. Mental health is a condition when our mind is peaceful and calm,
so we can live a good life too, while children's mental health is related to how children face the challenges that exist in
their lives. Community Service (PKM) "children's mental health education counseling after the covid-19 pandemic"
which was held at the Miftahul Ilmi Kindergarten/RA school was carried out as a form of concern for how important
mental health is to be maintained even after pandemic period has passed. The implementation of Community Service
(PKM) is carried out on a scale through two stages, namely: the observation stage and the activity implementation
stage. In the implementation stage, it is carried out through the lecture/discussion method of question and answer. The
participants provided material on what mental health is, recognizing mental health problems in children, the effects of
the COVID-19 pandemic on children's mental health, and the importance of maintaining mental health as well as tips
for maintaining mental health in children. The result of this Community Service (PKM) activity is that previously there
were still many parents who did not understand that not only physical health must be maintained but children's mental
health also has a very large role in the body of children's development in the future to live their lives.
