From the very first breath, mental health is part in the infant’s life.
Early childhood mental health is a little-known topic. Yet from the first months of a child’s life, we can spot signs of good mental health. Its influence on children’s development is significant, as it plays an important role in our little one’s ability to reach their full potential.
Studies report that children’s mental health affects how they socialize, how they learn, and how well they meet their potential. Young children with strong mental health are prepared and equipped to develop important skills and capacities to better face life’s challenges.
It is especially important for young children to develop good mental health from early childhood as it lays the foundation for future health and well-being. When we ensure the healthy development of our little ones, we are investing in a prosperous and sustainable future for our community.
