Goldie Hawn is opening up about her worries during the Coronavirus pandemic, but not for herself! Hawn is making it known that she's concerned for the children.

In a USA Today op-ed, Hawn shared that children's mental health could be hugely affected by the pandemic, and she shared how she's nervous for the future for our kids.

Goldie Hawn calls COVID "national trauma"

Goldie Hawn started her op-ed off by sharing how serious of an impact she thinks COVID has played on not just society, but the minds of our children.

"Today, we are in the midst of a national trauma that could very well surpass 9/11 and approach the heightened terror of the Cold War years," she started her piece. 

"The COVID era has changed our children’s lives in far more real, tangible ways — social distancing, school closures, daily mask use," she continued. 

Hawn then went on to share a troubling statistic regarding suicide rates in adolescents. 

"In early 2021, emergency room visits in the United States for suspected suicide attempts were 51 per cent higher for adolescent girls and 4 percent higher for adolescent boys, compared with the same time period in early 2019," she said. 

"Kids are afraid of people, spaces, even the air around them — a level of constant fear not seen in decades," she continued, noting that during her youth, riddled with the fear of the Cold War, and the ever-present knowledge of the threat of nuclear war still didn't grip the hearts of teens like COVID has. 

In a plea for change, Hawn notes that we can still have hope for a future, although the uncertainty of how this will affect a generation still lingers.

"I’m not sure we can survive an entire generation whose collective trauma sends them hobbling into adulthood," she said. "We need more research, more preventative care and more early intervention. And there’s still time."

She concluded, "If we get it right, today’s kids could emerge as the strongest generation America has ever produced."
