MALLMANN, Manoela Yustas et al. Impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on children's mental health. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2020, vol.25, n.4, pp. 449-459. ISSN 1413-294X.

Considering the repercussions of the current public health emergency caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19), it is necessary to understand how children are impacted by their mental health and the strategies that can be adopted while facing this experience. The individual's systemic view, which emphasizes his or her relations and interactions, allows a unique deepening of this matter. Thus, the purpose of this article was to present a critical literature review about the impacts of the new coronavirus pandemic on children's mental health. These impacts can be experienced by the child directly or indirectly and exist in different levels, such as individual, family, and social. Challenges and possibilities for children's mental health care are discussed regarding pandemic's impact.

Keywords : pandemic; covid-19; coronavirus; children's mental health.
