Social Determinants of Health Workgroup

Framework for Updated Plan

The plan will be developed through four task forces. The task forces are designed to address the unique needs that a child and their family face at different points of time on a mental health and wellness continuum and across systems. Their charge is as follows:

  • Create a series of cross-sector and interagency recommendations for how the State of Illinois can improve mental health and wellbeing for children and their families across the entire state. Each workgroup will incorporate the following themes in their recommendations: 1) diversity, equity, and inclusion 2) trauma 3) development and life course; 4) and needs in the public and private systems.

The following button titled, “Member Resources” grants access to Social Determinants of Health Workgroup Members to retrieve general information and background materials to help aid in the Plan development process.
