After the school shutdown or restrictions in Dubai, children have had a hard time over the last few years. Many have mental health issues. Parents might see behavioural changes, withdrawal from family, poor mood and heightened anxiety, poor communication and self-harm. Dubai has many professionals who can help. A good paediatric or child psychologist, psychiatrist, or mental health counsellor should be sought at the earliest opportunity.
There are a number of interventions.
