Benefits of Early Intervention

Early intervention may prevent lasting consequences of difficulties that arise in the first years. 

Mental health services to parents, infants and very young children address early signs of distress and support the parent’s role, the unfolding parent-child relationship, and the child’s development.

Healthy social and emotional development is the essence of infant and early childhood mental health. During the first three years of life an infant experiences extraordinary growth in relationships with parents, family, and community. Successful early relationships create a foundation for trust, lifelong learning and competence.
