Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health and UNICEF jointly hosted the first virtual conference on MHM in WinS. The conference provided an opportunity for UNICEF country offices around the world to share MHM in WinS research and practice initiatives and to discuss lessons learned and gaps in the remaining evidence. The conference contributed to raising awareness and interest in addressing MHM in schools, a topic that to date has been relatively taboo. [authors abstract]
