Description

On October 10, committee members of the recently released report Fostering Healthy Mental, Emotional, and Behavioral Development in Children and Youth: A National Agenda will host a public dialogue to discuss the key messages of their report. Following this morning session, the Forum for Children’s Well-Being will convene a public workshop on the state of mental, emotional, and behavioral health of children and youth in the United States. The goals of this workshop are:

  • To evaluate the current state of the science of promoting mental, emotional, and behavioral health of children and youth, including how far we’ve come since the inception of the Forum, where we are now, and where we hope to go in the near and distant future
  • To explore how various sectors, initiatives, and community efforts can impact the healthy development of children and youth, and how they all can collaborate in these efforts
  • To review the past work of the Forum and to set the stage for the Forum’s strategic discussions for future activities

An agenda for this day-long event is available on the Forum’s website.
