About Us

Our Editorial Mission

At the Child Mind Institute’s Family Resource Center we are committed to providing up-to-date, authoritative and actionable information about children’s mental health and well-being.

Our goal is to empower families, educators, and others involved in the care and support of children who are struggling to understand the challenges these kids may be facing and make informed decisions about how to help them. To that end we cover:

  • Resources to help families and educators decode complex or difficult behaviors to understand where kids are coming from and how to support them
  • Detailed information about mental health and learning disorders to help families be informed when they are seeking diagnosis
  • Current information about the best evidence-based treatments
  • Practical strategies that families and educators can us to help kids who are struggling with mental health or learning challenges
  • Advice for families about how to support healthy emotional development and raise resilient, independent kids

Our Editorial Process

Our articles and guides are based on the expertise of clinicians at the Child Mind Institute and other leading experts in children’s mental health and learning challenges.

Each of our pieces is based on extensive research as well as interviews with experienced experts who specialize in that area, including child and adolescent psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, clinical neuropsychologists, pediatricians, school psychologists, and learning specialists. Other sources include peer-reviewed studies, government mental health agencies, medical associations’ practice parameters, research institutions, and the latest Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5).

Articles are written by writers with experience in both children’s mental health topics and journalism, either on staff or freelance. They are reviewed for accuracy by our editors and the experts consulted.

Editorial Updates

The Child Mind Institute editorial team periodically reviews and updates resources to ensure that they are consistent with the latest clinical guidelines, research findings, and thinking in the fields of children’s mental health and learning. Our editors read widely and collaborate with clinicians to stay informed of developments and trends that affect not only children’s mental health care but the practice of parenting.

We welcome reader feedback on our resources. Working with clinical experts, we promptly correct any outdated or inaccurate information that is brought to our attention.
