Just like physical health, mental health in childhood focuses on reaching developmental and emotional milestones, learning healthy social skills, as well as how to cope when there are difficult situations. An important goal for all children is for them to be both physically and mentally healthy, so that they can have a positive quality of life-functioning well at home, in school, and in their communities. It is important that we remember that physical health is not just the absence of illness & disease and mental health is not simply the absence of a mental disorder. In this webinar, join a panel of experts discussing a whole-person approach to children’s health and well-being.
