On June 6th the Children's Mental Health Campaign hosted its Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Summit. It was a great day! We were pleased to be joined by DMH Commissioner Joan Mikula, DPH Commissioner Monica Bharel, EEC Commissioner Tom Weber, and Regional SAMHSA Admisintrator Kathryn Power. We were also thrilled to hear from our fantastic panelists, of Dr. Matieu Bermingham, Malika Arty, Jeri Robinson, and Emily Sherwood, who discussed inequities in infant and early childhood mental health care.
The 125 attendees, who represented a range of perspectives, professional backgrounds, and personal experiences, spent the afternoon formulated recommendations and action steps to move this work forward.
The Campaign will release a report from the summit, which will include 5-6 "next steps", in the coming weeks.
