Children’s Health & Mental Wellbeing: Whole-Person Approach

Just like physical health, mental health in childhood focuses on reaching developmental and emotional milestones, learning healthy social skills as well as how to cope when there are difficult situations. An important goal for all children is for them to be both physically and mentally healthy, so that they can have a positive quality of life-functioning well at home, in school, and in their communities. It is important that we remember that physical health is not just the absence of illness & disease and mental health is not simply the absence of a mental disorder. In today’s episode we welcome in Dr. John Lyons, who is the director of the Center for Innovation and Population Health at the University of Kentucky. Dr. Lyons has spent his entire career leading the charge for health equity, especially for children, youth and families involved with systems of care. For today’s discussion we have also invited three special health-tech startups who have invented great ways to use technology in supporting innovative whole person care.
