PolicyLab’s Behavioral Health Portfolio is recognizing Mental Health Awareness Month with a new blog post, written in collaboration with partners in Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s (CHOP) Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and the Center for Violence Prevention. The post offers a unique perspective on child mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic, outlining the impact across four key developmental stages, and discussing strategies to increase access to essential care and reduce disparities by investing in mental health research and services.
