CAMHI4Kids advocates for a children's mental health system in Iowa.
Children with strong mental health are equipped to develop important skills that begin in early childhood. Mental health is connected to social, emotional, and cognitive development and is the foundation for a healthy life, healthy community, and healthy state. When we ensure children’s mental health needs are met, they are more likely to perform better in school, graduate, and become healthy, productive adults in our community.
CAMHI4Kids supports the development of a children’s behavioral health system that includes a multi-tiered system of:
- Prevention, early identification, early intervention and community prevention
- Comprehensive crisis services
- Behavioral health treatment
- Community-based flexible support services
