Promoting a child’s mental health can help set them up for a lifetime of well-being. Unfortunately, too often children’s developmental and behavioral health needs go unaddressed — and those that do seek care have a difficult journey navigating through fragmented and inaccessible services.

Join host and Partner of Confluence Financial Partners, Greg Weimer, as he interviews fellow Children’s Hospital Foundation board member, Vanessa Morehouse, and Dr. Justin Schreiber, pediatrician, and child psychiatrist at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. They discuss the steps parents can take to recognize and address issues with mental health, as well as introduce UPMC Children’s new behavioral health medical home pilot, Whole Child Wellness Clinic — a philanthropy-driven, first-of-its-kind clinic that could revolutionize pediatric behavioral health care, minimize stigma, and lessen the burden on families. If you or a loved one is raising a child — or you are interested in how investing in pediatric mental health today can yield a cascade of benefits for our community tomorrow — you will not want to miss this episode.
