The Policy Café breakfast series brings together clinics, policymakers, community leaders, researchers and other stakeholders for quarterly discussions on the issues impacting Los Angeles County’s health care landscape. From sessions on state issues to debates at the federal level, and discussions on life after health care reform, the series drives dialogue on today’s hot topics. No podium. No PowerPoint. Just frank conversation.
On the Road to Resilience: Policy Strategies to Enhance Youth Mental Health
Mayra E. Alvarez
President and CEO,
The Children’s Partnership
The pandemic’s perfect storm of isolation, fear, anxiety, and loss enhanced a mental health crisis among California’s children and youth. While there are challenges on the horizon, we have a unique opportunity to re-assess how we deliver care, mitigate disparities, and improve mental health outcomes for our youth. State and local leaders are heeding the call to action, investing billions in expanding youth mental health system infrastructure and supporting new initiatives and strategies.
Join us for a timely discussion with Mayra E. Alvarez, President and CEO of The Children’s Partnership, to explore the state’s recent investments in mental health services, how we embark on the critical work ahead, and how, together, we build resiliency in youth impacted by trauma and COVID-19.
