FrameWorks Institute, October 2010

Dr. Adam Simon from the FrameWorks InstituteĀ details the results of an experimental survey of Albertans designed to explore the effects of alternative ways of talking about child mental health and the impacts of these frames on public support for child mental health policies. The report presents key findings and their implications with respect to current communications practice, along with information about communications strategies that appear promising in increasing support for childrenā€™s mental health and development policies. Corresponding presentation documents and materials coming soon.
