NAMI Forum Highlights Innovative Approaches to Children’s Mental Health

The National Alliance on Mental Illness has made available a complimentary video recording of a forum it hosted last month in conjunction with the Cigna Foundation. Focused on the challenges facing communities and families regarding the mental health needs of youth and young adults, the recording offers information on bringing effective programs to schools, primary care and other settings; addresses obstacles to preventing bullying, building workforce capacity and overcoming addiction disorders; and features testimony from youth on how to build and spread awareness of issues related to children’s mental health.
