While all of us communicate on a daily basis, in the sphere of public health, it is sometimes difficult to get our message across, especially when we are looking for behavior change. Social Marketing, the practice of using marketing fundamentals for social good rather than commercial profit, has been researched since the 1970’s. In the age of digital communications, best practice models must adapt for a changing landscape. Stronger, more persuasive communication is needed at all levels for best approaches to our most compelling problems.

Mental wellness is becoming increasingly tricky to maintain in our busy lives even as stigma decreases and access to care increases. 1 in 5 people in the U.S. have a diagnosable mental health condition yet many do not seek treatment. Early intervention is key to both prevention and successful recovery. Screening tools are widely available and can be used to identify potential needs in a variety of settings, including primary care. Mental Health America has made ten screening tools easily accessible to the public online: depression, anxiety, bipolar, PTSD, Youth, Parent (for child concern), alcohol or substance use, psychosis, eating disorder, and work health survey. Their Screening to Supports (S2S) Initiative offers users the ability to self-screen and connect with supports in their community.

A strong early learning system is a wise public investment, returning $3-$8 in long-term benefits for every dollar spent. High quality childcare and preschool programs enhance school readiness, reduce achievement gaps between privileged and disadvantaged children, and can even have lasting effects on learning, behavior, and health in adulthood. Reliable, affordable childcare is also a necessity for working parents.  Results of a recent statewide assessment of availability, cost, and quality identified bright spots as well as critical needs in our early learning landscape. Come and learn about hallmarks of quality programs, which of our communities are childcare deserts, and resources for families.
