Join Dr. Gigi Chawla, Chief of General Pediatrics, Children’s Minnesota, Erin Bailey, Assistant Commissioner of Children’s Cabinet, Shirley Toby, LFCC, and Angela Kapp, Owner of Midwest Child Development and Teachers for Tots, in a conversation facilitated by Fred Senn, Founding Partner at Fallon World Wide Services, as we turn the focus of Think Small Institute "Small Talks" speaker series towards children's mental health.
As we try to rise above the traumatic experiences of this past year, we must also turn our attention to the next pandemic, children's mental health.
Our Small Talks panel will
• discuss the lingering effects of COVID-19 on the physical and mental health of children
• explore COVID-19 as an adverse childhood experience (ACEs) and the importance of trauma-informed training for educators, families, and community leaders
• share ways to advocate for funding from the American Rescue Plan (ARP) to be shared equitably
Questions will be taken at the end. If you have a question for the panel, but will not be able to join us live you can submit it to Meredith Burks, MBurks@thinksmall.org by Monday, September 27.
