What Is Children’s Mental Health?
Being mentally healthy during childhood means reaching developmental and emotional milestones and learning healthy social skills and how to cope with problems. Mentally healthy children have a positive quality of life and can function well at home, in school, and in their communities. Mental disorders among children are described as serious difficulties in the way children typically learn, behave, or handle their emotions. Mental health is not simply the absence of a mental disorder. It includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. Learn more about children’s mental health, mental disorders, treatment, prevention, and public health research.

Bleeding Disorders Among Tweens and Teens May Go Undiagnosed
Bleeding disorders are conditions where blood does not clot normally, making it harder for bleeding to stop. As many as 1% of US women, girls, and other people with the potential to menstruate have a bleeding disorder, and many are unaware of their condition.

To bring awareness to the condition, CDC has launched a new digital toolkit with shareable graphics and sample social media posts to help tweens and teens who may have a bleeding disorder understand their symptoms and feel empowered to reach out for help.

New School Ventilation Report
CDC recently published a report on Ventilation Improvements Among K–12 Public School Districts in the United States to reduce school transmission of SARS-CoV-2. The findings show that equitable access and support might be needed to help school districts in their efforts to prevent respiratory infections through ventilation improvements. Federal funding for school districts remains available for ventilation upgrades.
