AbstractThe COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated some of the most pressing social problems and structural inequities, with a disproportionate impact on some of the most vulnerable youth. The goal of this article is to raise awareness among child mental health professionals of the ways in which the pandemic has likely exacerbated the commercial sexual exploitation of children in the United States. A second goal is to promote child mental health professionals’ ability to identify and care for these resilient yet underresourced youth.
