healthy kids and strong families
Early interventions have been linked to reduced health problems, less drug and alcohol abuse, and fewer interactions with law enforcement later in life.
Early Childhood Mental Health (ECMH) is a child's ability to experience, regulate and express emotions; to form close, secure bonds; and to explore the environment and to learn. It is about every child reaching his or her full potential.
Intervening early to address behavioral health issues has a significant and positive impact on a child's ability to bond with family, do better in school, and adjust well socially.
