MENTAL HEALTH CARE - IN ADDITION TO THEIR PHYSICAL HEALTH, CHILDREN'S POSITIVE DEVELOPMENT DEPENDS ON THEIR SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING. CHDI FOCUSES ON PREVENTION, EARLY INTERVENTION AND PROVIDING ACCESS TO QUALITY CHILDREN'S MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES AND TRAUMA-INFORMED CARE FOR CHILDREN WITH BEHAVIORAL HEALTH NEEDS. WE COLLABORATE WITH STATE AGENCIES, COMMUNITY-BASED PROVIDERS, SCHOOLS, AND ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS TO IDENTIFY, IMPLEMENT, AND EVALUATE EFFECTIVE MODELS OF TREATMENT, AND HAVE DEVELOPED AN APPROACH TO ENSURE THESE RESEARCH-BASED MODELS WORK IN REAL-WORLD SETTINGS, RESULTING IN BETTER OUTCOMES FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES. OUR WORK HAS RESULTED IN MORE THAN 12,000 CHILDREN RECEIVING AN EVIDENCED-BASED TREATMENT FOR TRAUMA AND OTHER BEHAVIORAL HEALTH CONDITIONS SINCE 2008. WE HAVE HELPED CONNECTICUT BUILD TRAUMA-INFORMED SYSTEMS OF CARE AND ADVANCED STATEWIDE BEHAVIORAL HEALTH POLICY AND SYSTEM CHANGES SO CHILDREN CAN THRIVE. CHDI CO-DEVELOPED AND COORDINATES THE CONNECTICUT SCHOOL-BASED DIVERSION INITIATIVE (SBDI), WHICH HELPS SCHOOLS IDENTIFY AND CONNECT STUDENTS WITH BEHAVIORAL HEALTH CONCERNS TO COMMUNITY-BASED SERVICES, DECREASING THE LIKELIHOOD OF SUSPENSION, EXPULSION OR ARREST, AND PROMOTING BETTER ACADEMIC OUTCOMES AND OVERALL WELL-BEING.

OUR EDUCATING PRACTICES PROGRAM PROVIDES TRAINING TO PEDIATRIC PRIMARY CARE PROVIDERS ON 19 TOPICS, SUCH AS MANAGING BEHAVIORAL HEALTH ISSUES, ORAL HEALTH SERVICES, TRAUMA, DEVELOPMENTAL SCREENING AND PROMOTING SOCIO-EMOTIONAL HEALTH IN YOUNG CHILDREN. AS A RESULT OF OUR WORK, MORE CHILDREN ARE RECEIVING DEVELOPMENTAL AND MENTAL HEALTH SCREENINGS IN PEDIATRIC PRIMARY CARE AND ARE BEING CONNECTED TO EARLY INTERVENTION SERVICES, CARE COORDINATION SERVICES, AND OTHER SUPPORTS. WE ALSO PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES FOR CHILD HEALTH SITES TO IMPROVE THE CARE THEY PROVIDE BY USING DATA DRIVEN, QUALITY IMPROVEMENT METHODOLOGIES, AND CONNECT THEM TO OTHER SECTORS OF CARE THAT CONTRIBUTE TO CHILDREN'S DEVELOPMENT, SUCH AS CHILDCARE PROGRAMS AND SCHOOLS.

RESEARCH HAS ALSO CLEARLY DOCUMENTED THE IMPORTANCE OF SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL HEALTH AND PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE FIRST YEARS OF LIFE AS THE GROUNDING FOR LIFELONG WELL-BEING. CHDI IS TRANSLATING INFANT ATTACHMENT RESEARCH INTO PRACTICE CHANGES AND POLICY SOLUTIONS BY SUPPORTING THE DEVELOPMENT OF A WORKFORCE TRAINED TO ADVANCE THE SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF CHILDREN BEGINNING IN THEIR EARLIEST YEARS. CHDI COLLABORATED WITH STATE AGENCIES TO DESIGN A SYSTEM FOR MONITORING CHILDREN'S DEVELOPMENT AND LINKING CHILDREN TO HELPFUL INTERVENTION SERVICES AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE. WE ARE ALSO SUPPORTING WAYS TO INTEGRATE CHILD CARE HEALTH CONSULTANTS, AND OTHER PROFESSIONALS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO CHILDREN'S HEALTH, SAFETY AND DEVELOPMENT, INTO THE LARGER HEALTH SYSTEM THROUGH STATEWIDE HEALTH REFORM EFFORTS.
