Children's Mental Health: Support Happens in Community
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, so Paul Mattessich spoke with two experts on children's mental health in Minnesota. The discussion covers formal and informal mental health services, what we know about building positive relationships, and what you can do to help promote mental health among children.
- Dr. Cheryl Holm-Hansen, senior research manager at Wilder Research, where she's led studies related to children's mental health for more than 20 years.
- Dr. Mark Sander, senior clinical psychologist for Hennepin County & director of school mental health for Hennepin County and Minneapolis Public Schools.
