In the post-pandemic period, 7 out of 10 students reported symptoms of anxiety or depression, according to a study. The teacher reveals a feeling of hopelessness and helplessness in dealing with the situation

“We have many children with symptoms of depression and anxiety. One student even fainted at school and the child left several times in the middle of class, in the middle of the exam, unable to breathe, staying there crying, shivering.

We have a lot of kids who have anxiety attacks — we think, right, because we can’t diagnose anyone. But I think it is due to everything that has happened in the pandemic.

We talk to the child, talk to the family and refer them to a psychologist. But after a while we asked her, will she leave? [ao psicólogo]? ‘ And they say ‘I went once, but there was nothing else’. They provide primary care, but cannot follow up with a psychiatrist at the health center.

We referred a girl who was raped when she was younger and it was UPS [Unidade Básica de Saúde] She responded with a document saying she needed a referral to psychology. But she also says that they do not have a psychologist in the unit’s Family Health Support Center and that he does not fit into the Caps IJ ملف profile [Centros de Atenção Psicossocial Infantojuvenil].
