A Broad View of Mental Health
The National Technical Assistance Center is dedicated to a broad and inclusive view of mental health and a public health approach for supporting the mental health of all vulnerable children and their families. Our approach encompasses promotion, prevention, and intervention including:
- Promotion of well-being, strengthening resilience in children and families, and the prevention of mental health problems;
- Early intervention with young children at-risk and with children of all ages before emotional and behavior problems become severe; and
- Effective interventions with children and youth who have serious emotional disturbances.
