The First Five Years
The first five years of a child's life have a significant impact on their physical, cognitive, and social-emotional development.
The development of a young child can be adversely affected by factors such as disruptions in attachment that can be caused by parental substance abuse, parental mental health issues, and traumatic loss, which can result in toxic or chronic stress.
ECMH services can mitigate or prevent the negative impacts of adverse factors.
