The purpose of this program is to promote the wellness of young children, from birth to 8 years of age, by addressing the social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and behavioral aspects of their development, as well as prepare them to thrive in school and beyond. The awards will also provide local communities or tribes resources to disseminate effective and innovative early childhood mental health practices and services. With this program, SAMHSA aims to promote resilience and emotional health for children, youth, and their families.
Project LAUNCH is designed to build the capacities of adult caregivers of young children to promote healthy social and emotional development; to prevent mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders; and to identify and address behavioral concerns before they develop into serious emotional disturbances (SED).
