American children's mental health is worsening. Young people and their families are dealing with the emotional impact of inflation, social
injustice, mass violence, and grief related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our guests are Gary Pettengell, co-founder and CEO of ECINS (Empowering Communities with Integrated Network Systems) and Kimberly Matias, LCSW, a school social worker in the Providence (Rhode Island) public school district.
