Healthy Social-Emotional Development

Much like physical development, it's just as important to foster a baby’s social and emotional health by ensuring a full spectrum of services, from prevention to intervention to treatment, is available to address their mental health needs.

Children who experience stressful or traumatic events at an early age are more likely to develop behavior and learning difficulties in school that can lead to long‐term consequences such as physical and mental health issues in adulthood. Research demonstrates that early prevention and treatment are more beneficial and cost effective than attempting to treat emotional difficulties and their effects on learning and health after they become serious.
