by | Apr 7, 2022 | Advocacy and Legal, Community Events, Medical, Mental Health, Professionals

We are in the midst of a child and adolescent mental health crisis. The pandemic has affected children and adolescents in unique and profound ways that require attention to their social and emotional well-being and behavioral health.

In response to the deepening mental health crisis, the UCSF School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, and Center for Child and Community Health launched Health Equity Action Time (HEAT), a dedicated multidisciplinary forum for child and adolescent providers, community organizations, policy leaders, health system partners, and advocates to come together and drive meaningful change.

Please join us for a 3-part interactive, virtual series as we come together as a community to foster learning, connection, and concrete action to strengthen the system of care for children and adolescents and improve their well-being and mental health outcomes.

Over this 3-part series, we will:
· Learn from community, medical, and policy experts
· Deepen individual and collective commitment to improving health equity
· Increase knowledge and awareness and build skills
· Gather information and contribute to enacting promising solutions
· Outline a path for taking concrete action steps moving forward
