Two generations. One future.

Health & Well-Being

Physical health and mental health, a component of the two-generation approach, have a major impact on a family’s ability to thrive. Childhood trauma, for instance, has lasting health and social consequences. Similarly, economic supports, such as housing, and social capital, such as connections to one’s neighborhood and community, are important social determinants of health. The Affordable Care Act and Medicaid expansion, as well as delving further into brain science and the social determinants of health, offer opportunities for increasing the health and well-being of children and their parents.
