The Forum on Promoting Children's Cognitive, Affective, and Behavioral Health, in collaboration with the Roundtable on the Promotion of Health Equity, hosted a workshop that explored initiatives and policies across domains that have an impact on the cognitive, affective, and behavioral health for all children, youth, and families. This workshop used an socio-ecological developmental model to explore health equity of children and families, including those with complex needs and chronic conditions.
Particular attention was 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 engaged 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.
