What are the effects of increased screentime on kids during the pandemic? Morgan Stanley-funded researchers are finding out.
Morgan Stanley is committed to giving back to the communities where we live and work through long-lasting partnerships, community-based delivery and engaging our best asset—Morgan Stanley employees.
Our latest initiative combines the resources and reach of Morgan Stanley with the knowledge and experience of our distinguished nonprofit partner organizations to help deliver positive, tangible impact on the critical challenges of stress, anxiety, and depression in children, adolescents and young people.
Researchers at Columbia University are testing new ways to engage youth who rely on telehealth to treat mental health issues, including anxiety and depression, through a study funded in part by the Morgan Stanley Alliance for Children’s Mental Health.
For more than 50 years, the Morgan Stanley Foundation has supported healthy starts and solid educations for the children in our communities, and has continued to expand the reach of those initiatives globally for the past 20 years through the Morgan Stanley International Foundation.
Morgan Stanley Foundation programs focus on three core fundamentals for children’s physical and cognitive development: sustained access to healthy and nutritious food, safe places to play, and access to quality healthcare.Grant Guidelines International Grant Guidelines
