We are engaged in multiple new initiatives that promote behavioral health and positive outcomes for children and families.
Promoting Healthy Students by Addressing Behavioral Health Needs
In partnership with John Crocker, the University of Maryland’s National Center for School Mental Health, and the Children’s Mental Health Campaign, the EBPI is developing a policy report to explore school-based behavioral health in Massachusetts and the ways in which evidence-based approaches can promote positive outcomes for students and families.
Promoting Positive Outcomes For LGBTQ+ Youth
In partnership with the Harvard Kennedy School, we’re exploring issues impacting LGBTQ+ youth in the Commonwealth. Our goal is to address the disproportionate negative outcomes experienced by LGBTQ+ youth and promote the best possible outcomes.
Supporting Children & Families During COVID-19
The pandemic has exacerbated youth mental health needs worldwide. Now is the time to consider how those needs will be met. We are working to help partners at the policy, systems, and community levels understand the impact of COVID-19 on children and families, so they can provide the best possible care to support children through this challenging time.
