Words Can Work: The Pandemic and Kids’ Mental Health

Words Can Work is a documentary series devoted to the impact the pandemic has had on kids’ mental health. The content extends beyond the pandemic—it addresses how to nurture resilience among children in uncertain, changing times. I hope this project and research continues, and goes far. 

I built this website Words Can Work using the platform Wix. For the aesthetic of the site I decided to go with a color palette of gentle gradients and soft tones. I kept the structure as simple as possible. The site features videos on the home page representing the three age demographics, so that the video content most helpful to parents and teachers is easy to find. There are four main pages: The Videos, The Project, Why Talk Now, and Quick Takes. Please note that I have not been responsible for maintaining this site.
