Mental Health Grants:  The local Early Childhood Mental Health grantees can help early education and out-of-school time educators and families address the social-emotional development and behavioral health of children birth through 14 years old, who are enrolled in EEC programs and family child care homes. ECMH consultants can also assist programs and families with referrals for additional behavioral health services, if needed.  There are three different agencies covering the 63 communities in Region 3 – see below:
