This program furthers the Department's mission by providing grants and cooperative agreements for research and evaluation activities to organizations that OJJDP designates.
The National Academy of Sciences, Board on Children, Youth, and Families will establish a Forum on Promoting Children's Affective, Cognitive, and Behavioral Health (C-CAB Health Forum). The Forum members and participants will engage in dialogue and discussion to connect the prevention, treatment, and implementation sciences with settings where children are seen and cared for, including primary health care, schools, preschools and child care, social service and child welfare, juvenile justice, family court, military, and community based organizations, and to create systems that are effective and affordable in addressing children's needs. The primary goal of the forum is to highlight and address gaps in the science of implementing programs and practices in the service of informing research, policy, and practice. NCA/NCF

Cognitive, affective, and behavioral disorders incur high psychosocial and economic costs for the young people who experience them, for their families, and for the communities in which they live, study, and will work. The Forum on promoting Children’s Cognitive, Affective, and Behavioral Health was established in fall of 2013 as an outgrowth of the 2009 National Research Council-Institute of Medicine report Preventing Mental, Emotional, and Behavioral Disorders Among Young People: Progress and Possibilities which called on the nation to make the prevention of such disorders and the promotion of mental health of young people a high priority. The forum engages in dialogue and discussion to connect the prevention, treatment, and implementation sciences with settings where children are seen and cared for, including health care settings, schools, social service and child welfare agencies, and the juvenile justice system, and to create systems that are effective and affordable in addressing children’s needs. The forum aims to inform a forward-looking agenda for building a stronger research and practice base around the development and implementation of programs, practices, and policies to promote all children’s cognitive, affective, and behavioral health, including those with disabilities. Through public workshops, commissioned papers, and other activities, the forum aims to identify what decision makers and practitioners at multiple levels hope to learn from implementation science and how implementation science can better meet those needs.
