Jan. 26, 1 PM ET | How to Fund and Foster Innovation in Children’s Mental Health | Webinar

ACCP is excited to welcome Joan Steinberg, Global Head of Philanthropy, President, Morgan Stanley Foundation and CEO of Morgan Stanley Alliance for Children’s Mental Health Advisory Board for an educational webcast. COVID-19, and its repercussions, have taken a toll on children’s mental health and emotional well-being, particularly in vulnerable and marginalized communities. We need to foster innovation in this space and fund it to make sure organizations can scale their solutions to reach the children that need it most. But for organizations with innovative solutions, getting off the ground can be difficult. Funding and counsel can be hard to come by. This session will cover:

  • How COVID-19 and social inequity impact children’s mental health and their access to care
  • Trends and innovations in the children’s mental health space as well as funding landscape, needs, and strategy
  • Approaches to mental health funding that are collaborative, strategic, and functional
  • Lessons learned from an innovative grantmaking program
