Public Health Approach to Children's Mental Health: A Conceptual Framework

Advances an approach to children’s mental health that applies public health concepts to efforts that support children’s mental health and development. The approach is presented in a conceptual framework comprised of four major elements: values that underlie the entire effort, guiding principles that steer the work, a process that consists of three core public health action steps/functions, and a new model of intervening that provides the range of intervention activities required to implement a comprehensive approach.
