Parents and educators are united in ensuring that children remain healthy during this pandemic. The Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships (CP3) helps everyone remain safe by working with local communities to develop local prevention frameworks. These frameworks build protective factors that dissuade individuals from radicalizing to violence and address risk factors that may make an individual more susceptible to radicalizing to violence. One of those risk factors is social isolation. Social isolation (whether voluntary or not, short-term or long-term) may impact a child’s mental health. These mental health issues may result in a decline of social cohesion and social capital which may increase an individual’s willingness to accept messages of radicalization to violence.
