In 2008, FrameWorks began a multi-year study of American thinking about child and family mental health. Building on a decade of research on public perceptions of children’s issues, this research was designed to compare expert understanding with public patterns of thinking and to use framing research to close the conceptual gap.
Watch Your Mouth™ is a multi-media public awareness campaign created by FrameWorks to help increase the public’s understanding of the issue of children’s oral health and the community-based solutions needed to address the nation’s most common, chronic disease of childhood: dental decay.
Social, physical, political and economic environments – which vary widely from town to town and even from neighborhood to neighborhood – have a strong effect on the health not only of individuals, but of entire communities, and the country as a whole.
From 2002-2004, the FrameWorks Institute conducted an integrated series of research projects to determine how Americans think about health care and the problems facing the health care system.
