Children’s Institute has over fifty years experience in addressing children’s social and emotional health.

We bring together the academic, educational, and human service sectors to pose questions and find answers on a vast range of topics. 

We use a range of established research methods, or depending on needs, we also design and study new approaches to problems confronting schools, children, caregivers, families, and physical and mental health service providers in order to ensure that:

  • Children's problems may be identified sooner
  • Children will have access to effective interventions
  • Accurate and current data are provided to policymakers who make decisions for children

Our digital library offers publications and technical reports arising from our work spanning fifty years. Many of our publications are classics; others were groundbreaking in their time and deserve to be remembered. Still other contributions represent current work that is making a difference in the lives of children and those who serve them.
