Main Message:

  • Social and emotional development begins before birth and is just as important to a child’s success and well-being as cognitive and physical development.
  • Asking parents about their own social, emotional and mental health and that of their children can go a long way toward ensuring children’s healthy development.

Supporting Messages:

  • Health care providers help families address all aspects of a child’s well-being by increasing access to screening, providing developmental assessments, and offering guidance and referrals to appropriate services for young children, families, as well as expectant and new parents.
