How Play Helps: How Play Supports Kids’ Mental Health & Emotional Development


After the year we’ve all been through, it may not come as a surprise that there’s a mental health emergency among children that’s only worsening as a result of the emotional toll the pandemic, economic crisis, and struggle against racial inequities is having on children.

And although it’s frightening to admit, it’s incredibly important that we realize how extensively children are impacted by stressors in their homes, neighborhoods, and communities. Stress from school, family issues, economic and housing challenges, changes in routine, health issues, abuse, trauma, and other adverse childhood experiences have significant and negative impacts on children.  Those stressors have been real and more plentiful than ever over the past year, causing rises in reports of childhood depression, behavioral issues, suicidal attempts, and other mental health concerns.

The good news: There are steps that we can take to both prevent adverse childhood experiences and support children’s mental health, setting our children up to succeed and thrive in school and life. But with the foundation for mental health built early in life, it’s important that we understand how to recognize and respond to mental health concerns in our children – and how to help support good mental health as well.

Q&A With Brennen Jensen and Tom Chalkley, Authors and Baltimore History Lovers


Brennen Jensen and Tom Chalkley are quick to tell you that they’re not from Baltimore, which means they weren’t born here and didn’t go to a Baltimore high school. But Chalkley moved here in the 1970s and Jensen in the late 1980s, and they’ve been writing about Baltimore for more than 70 years combined. In a way, being “outsiders” has helped them look for interesting stories and not take Baltimore for granted.
