Early Intervention and Behavioral Health Integration

The overall focus in this area is early identification of behavioral health issues and timely intervention via appropriate behavioral health services and supports to children, youth, young adults and their families. This is achieved by implementing services and supports for those young children and their families, and by integrating behavioral health services into primary care, education, juvenile justice and other systems and settings in which they function.

Our activities in this area are designed to provide practical strategies and tools for early childhood systems of care and for integrating behavioral health into other systems.
