Infant & Early Childhood Mental Health: An Investment for Our Future

Babies and toddlers’ emotional wellness depends on secure relationships with parents and other caregivers that let them feel safe, able to learn, and engage positively with others. Because these relationships are so key to child development, supporting caregivers supports children. When families are supported in this way, their children grow up to have better school and work performance, more resilience to trauma, and fewer mental health concerns in adulthood.
