Cognitive, affective, and behavioral disorders incur high psychosocial and economic costs for the young people who experience them, for their families, and for the communities in which they live, study, and will work.

The Forum on Promoting Children’s Cognitive, Affective, and Behavioral Health, 
established in 2014, emerged from the 2009 NRC/IOM report Preventing Mental, Emotional, and Behavioral Disorders Among Young People: Progress and Possibilitieswhich called on the nation to make the prevention of such disorders and the promotion of mental health of young people a high priority.

 

The Forum engages in an ongoing discussion to connect the prevention, treatment, and implementation sciences with settings where children are seen and cared for, including health care settings, schools, social service and child welfare agencies, and the juvenile justice system, and to create systems that are effective and affordable in addressing children’s needs.
