Behavioral Health: A Snapshot of a PolicyLab Research Portfolio
Behavioral health issues have a profound impact on the overall health and well-being of youth and their families. Early identification and timely, effective prevention and treatment of behavioral health conditions provide youth the opportunity to be their healthiest selves. Our research seeks to increase the number and types of providers who can deliver evidence-based behavioral health services, and expand settings in which they can deliver those services, while addressing barriers that make it difficult for families to access care and treatment. We are also establishing community partnerships that foster the growth and development of programs and policies that recognize the importance of child mental health.
