Cornerstone 3: Access to Mental Health Consultation & Support
The Bright Futures Roadmap is a community-wide strategy to support the health and well-being of our community’s youngest children and families. The Roadmap is organized around four cornerstones or key strategies. Partners have begun to identify opportunities for cross-cornerstone collaboration.
CORNERSTONE 3: Families, child care programs, providers have access to mental health consultation to fully support the social-emotional development of children and mental health of adults.
Cornerstone 3 has three primary strategies, which you can read more about on this page:
- Build public awareness of the importance and value of supporting the social-emotional health of young children and their families.
- Recruit, retain, and support qualified infant and early childhood mental health consultants.
- Assure the availability of mental health consultants for all types of child-serving settings.
