Treasure Hunting: Securing Funding for Early Childhood Mental Health Services and Supports

  • Implementing a strong, sustainable early childhood system that fosters positive mental health can be challenging on many levels.  Perhaps one of the greatest challenges is securing long-term funding to support these efforts, as it requires significant investment and multiple funding streams. To help facilitate this complex task, this webinar will explore potential funding sources for early childhood mental health supports and services, and encourage participants to think about how to use them strategically.  Particular attention will be given to financing clinical services and infusing early childhood mental health into primary care settings.
