Event description

Description

This virtual workshop is part of a series that is co-organized by the MCH Life Course Intervention Research Network and the National Academies' Forum for Children's Well-Being. The series will focus on understanding how mental health disorders develop over the lifespan, with a special emphasis on prenatal, early, middle, and later childhood. It will also focus on identifying gaps in our knowledge, exploring new strategies for using existing data to enhance our understanding of the developmental origins of mental disorders, reviewing potential approaches to prevention and optimization, and proposing new ways of framing how we understand, address, and prevent these disorders from a life course development perspective.

For the second webinar in this series, Stephen Buka, ScD (Founding Chair, Epidemiology, Brown University School of Public Health) will host a discussion about the epidemiology of children's mental health disorders. Information for joining the webinar will be sent out prior to the event. Please contact Erin Kellogg, ekellogg@nas.edu, with any questions.
