STRONG Support for Children Act
Led by Congresswoman Pressley, this federal bill would establish two new grant programs to support local Public Health Departments in addressing trauma and ensure that programming is conveniently located and accessible to all children and families regardless of immigration status, ability to pay, and prior involvement in the criminal legal system.
The Children's Mental Health Campaign has endorsed this bill, and we will continue to advocate at the federal level for its passage.
School-based Behavioral Health Survey
Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH) and the Campaign have developed a survey that asks questions about families' experiences receiving school-based services and supports for the social, emotional, and behavioral health and wellbeing of their children and families.
The survey will take about 10-15 minutes to complete, and parents/caregivers are able to skip any questions they do not feel like answering. The survey is available in 7 languages (English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Arabic, Brazilian Portuguese, Haitian Creole, and Simple Chinese)
