The Affordable Care Act has stimulated attention to health promotion, prevention, and access to evidence-based care. These principles could not be more important than during childhood, when the foundation is laid for lifelong health and wellbeing.

The Forum on Promoting Children's Cognitive, Affective, and Behavioral Health held a workshop on April 1-2, 2015, to explore how healthcare reforms, broadly considered, can provide opportunities and support innovations to promote children’s behavioral health and sustain them over time. Funding streams, intermediary organizations, and innovative programs and services were included on the agenda. The workshop format was designed to stimulate discussion among experts, forum members and the workshop audience, and to enhance the likelihood of collaborations going forward.
