Tomorrow marks Child Mental Health Awareness Day, a day set aside to focus on the importance of children’s mental health — that positive mental health is essential to a kid’s whole development.Improving mental health treatment and care here on the First Coast has become a big priority for caregivers and civic leaders. Not just for adults but for our young people too. 

Elena Saladino, clinical lead therapist in pediatric behavioral health at Wolfson Children’s Hospital, joined Melissa Ross for more on child mental health.
