Call in to speak with the host
Elaine Zimmerman is the Executive Director of the Connecticut Commission on Children, and a member of the Achievement Gap Task Force.
The Commission takes an "entrepreneurial" approach to supporting the well-being of Connecticut's children, and has spent a lot of energy looking to help parents achieve self-empowerment in local civics and politics.
Ms. Zimmerman helps us understand what we can do to ensure that mental health issues are considered in the work of the Achievement Gap Task Force.
It's good to talk.
