White Plains Hospital’sHealthy Community Initiative (HCI)

Emotional Wellbeing

Emotionally healthy kids are able to cope effectively with life challenges, and kids who have developed their emotional regulation skills generally have easier and better relationships throughout their lives. Parents can help their kids hone these skills by maintaining an open and equal sense of communication.

Stress, anxiety, bullying and peer pressure can affect a child’s mood and behaviors, and may lead to serious health consequences. White Plains Hospital, through its commitment to the overall health of children in our community, supports parents in taking an active role in their child’s emotional and social development. Learning to recognize some of the biggest pressures affecting children today, and assisting them in managing them, goes hand-in-hand with optimal health and better lives.
