I don't think we're going to see much in terms of impact of the research component here because grants that have already been made won't be affected. But evaluation of new research proposals may be delayed during the shutdown, though I'm not sure how consequential that is, national Institutes of Health also has a very sizable health service for people who have not been successfully treated with conventional modalities and are on research protocols, often as a last ditch effort to be cured and that's obviously very meaningful.
It's rarely going to be a direct cause and effect, a storm would not cause a well balanced kid to kill themselves. But this is mostly worrisome for the vulnerable children that is, (children) who have had some preexisting challenges like depression ... Kids who tend to be loners and not very communicative. Kids with other types of mental health conditions ... This is the last straw.
