How to sustain youth & family wellbeing in the JJ system during the COVID-19 crisis

All people are hardwired for wellbeing — the needs and experiences universally required in combination and balance to weather challenges and have health and hope. Our access to wellbeing is particularly crucial during stress and times of change. Young people in the juvenile justice system face unique challenges with the COVID-19 crisis. Quarantines, social distancing and shelter-in-place requirements that restrict family engagement and disrupt routines can add to the stress of youth who are in custody and their families. Using the Five Domains of Wellbeing framework, this resource provides strategies and examples for juvenile justice leaders and staff to support and sustain youth wellbeing during this time of crisis.
