Children’s Mental Health and the Life Course Model

Opportunity Overview

April 16, 2020

This is a virtual event.

Per the National Academies of Sciences, “This virtual workshop is part of a series that is co-organized by the Maternal-Child Health Life Course Intervention Research Network and the National Academies’ Forum for Children’s Well-Being. The series will focus on understanding how mental health disorders develop over the lifespan, with a special emphasis on prenatal, early, middle, and later childhood. It will also focus on identifying gaps in our knowledge, exploring new strategies for using existing data to enhance our understanding of the developmental origins of mental disorders, reviewing potential approaches to prevention and optimization, and proposing new ways of framing how we understand, address, and prevent these disorders from a life course development perspective.”

In light of the current coronavirus pandemic, such a series will touch upon approaches that can assist children with coping with increasing distressing times and navigating unprecedented uncertainty in their lives.
