The Infant, Preschool, Family Mental Health Initiative
This set of documents was produced through the Infant, Preschool,
Family, Mental Health Initiative (IPFMHI). These products, a
joint effort of First 5 California, the California Department of
Mental Health, and the California Institute of Mental Health, are
designed to support First 5 Special Needs Demonstrations Sites,
First 5 School Readiness Sites, and other early mental health
program efforts across the state.
These three guides offer information and outline structures that
can support the development of programs that identify
social-emotional developmental delays and disorders, and promote
access to prevention, early intervention, and treatment services
for children birth to 5 years old.
