Panelists: Amanda Zayde, PsyD, and Ingi Soliman, PhD
Our discussion will focus on the unique mental health difficulties facing school-aged children within the current socio-political-economic landscape of mental health care. Particular emphasis will be placed on issues related to access to care and equity for minoritized children and their families, particularly in relation to immigrant communities. Drs Zayde and Soliman will discuss their work, experience, and way of thinking about the intersection of these social issues along with experiences of loneliness and belonging in the treatment of school-aged children and their families. A moderated discussion and Q&A will follow.
