Joy Hogge, executive director of Families as Allies, asked three key leaders in Mississippi how they would “flip the script” on children’s mental health in the state. In this video are answers from Dr. William Merritt of Jackson Public Schools, Dr. Nathan Oakley of the Mississippi Department of Education and State Health Officer Thomas E. Dobbs III, M.D., who heads up the Mississippi State Department of Health.

In three separate segments, each of these education and health leaders says what he would do to “flip the script” on children’s mental health by making mental healthcare more acceptable and accessible, by students, parents and by the systems that serve families.
