Mental health is an important part of children’s overall health and well-being. Many investigators in the Manne Research Institute have the expertise necessary to understand children’s mental health and mental health disorders and mental health challenges including impact of adverse childhood events, access to treatment, and chronic health conditions. The Mental Health Springboard Awards will provide resources to allow research institute investigators to initiate new research efforts towards understanding aspects of childhood and adolescent mental health across the translational research spectrum (i.e., basic, clinical, and health services research) while working to obtain extramural funding to sustain these new research collaborations.
