Hosted by ECFC's partner, the Children, Youth and Family Funders Roundtable

Children need nurturing relationships with their caregivers and communities to build trust and a feeling of safety and belonging in the world. This early relational health (ERH) can be a keystone of mental wellness and resiliency, preparing children to thrive in a challenging world.
During a national emergency in child and adolescent mental health, it is critical for funders to question what can be done to quell the emergency, both now and in the future. ERH is one area with significant opportunities for funders to act.
Join the Children, Youth and Family Funders Roundtable to hear from David Willis, Senior Fellow at the Center for the Study of Social Policy, to learn about what funders can do to strengthen children’s earliest relationships with their caregivers and broader communities.
