This community resource, created in partnership with First 5 Association of CaliforniaPara Los Niños and Best Start Region 1 is intended to help parents, caregivers and family members of infants and toddlers support their child’s early mental health and social-emotional development.

Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health (IECMH), also known as social-emotional development, is just as important as physical health to a child’s well-being. Without support, even the youngest kids can suffer from mental health issues, disorders and conditions. Parents play an important part in building your babies’ social-emotional strengths.
