The Collaborative has a strong commitment to addressing the mental health needs of diverse children and their families through culturally competent, family-focused initiatives that: 1) support families, 2) support pediatric practices and providers, 3) facilitate the integration of mental health services into primary care, and 4) support relevant policy/advocacy efforts.

Joyful Markets are monthly pop-up fresh food markets at elementary schools in the city, co-sponsored by Martha’s Table, Capital Area Food Bank, and DC Public Schools.

Each month, there is a health-related theme, complete with a fun activity or game for the kids and informational handouts for the parents who stop by to enable the markets to promote health and wellness. In the 2016 school year, the project will expand to additional schools.
