Legislative Advocacy

In collaboration with Yale’s Office of Federal and State Relations and Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital, Yale Child Study Center (YCSC) faculty and staff work together to advocate for state legislation concerning children’s behavioral health services, with the goal of translating research and evidence-based practice into effective policy change.

These advocacy efforts include oral and written testimony as well as discussion around important issues at legislative forums, centered around the department’s legislative agenda each year. A few examples are included at the following links.
