Children’s Mental Health: How Science Informs Policy A Conversation With Local Experts

For parents, few things are as important as their children’s well-being, physically and mentally.

The mental health of children has always been an important topic for scientists and policy makers as well. And over the last several months, the COVID pandemic has magnified issues around mental health, bringing them to the forefront of the public’s thinking.

The Museum of Science and GBH have convened a panel of experts to discuss the relationship between scientists, doctors, and policy makers as they work together to help create policy that will improve the mental health of children while also dispelling any stigma associated with these issues.
