Supporting the Development of Infants and Toddlers in the Child Welfare System: A Call to Action
This webinar described key strategies that should be part of a comprehensive state system of supports for young children’s mental health.
The webinar highlighted a recent National Center for Children in Poverty publication, Building Strong Systems of Support for Young Children’s Mental Health. Representatives from New York and Colorado shared examples of how they have used a planning tool to assess their states’ early childhood mental health supports and prioritize enhancements. Work by ZERO TO THREE on financing of infant-toddler mental health services was also described.
