Meeting Start: 11/14/2017Meeting End:11/14/2017
Comment: The Forum on Promoting Children's Cognitive, Affective, and Behavioral Health, in collaboration with the Roundtable on the Promotion of Health Equity, is hosting a workshop that will explore initiatives and policies across domains that have an impact on the cognitive, affective, and behavioral health for all children, youth, and families. This workshop will use an eco-developmental model to explore health equity of children and families, including those with complex needs and chronic conditions.

Particular attention will be paid to challenges experienced by children and families in both rural and urban contexts, to include but not limited to poverty, individual and institutional racism, low-resourced communities, and hindered access to educational and health care services. Workshop participants will engage in solution-oriented discussions of initiatives, policies, and programs that aim to improve social determinants of health (jobs, economy, education, transportation, and housing), opportunities for behavioral health promotion, and access to quality services that address the behavioral health of all children and families.
