FIRST 5 Santa Clara County

FIRST 5 Santa Clara County | Santa Clara County Events and Resources to Support Youth Development | Scoop.it

"...Research shows that a child’s brain develops most dramatically during the first five years of life. During this critical period, a window of opportunity exists to help shape how a child’s brain matures and to lay the foundation for all of the years that follow. While the early period in children’s development is absolutely critical to their future success, it is also where public investments are lowest.
 

FIRST 5 provides all children ages 0-5 with programs and services that ensure children are born and remain healthy, receive more from their education, and become productive adults."...

Raising Early Awareness and Creating Hope Program (REACH) // Momentum for Mental Health

Raising Early Awareness and Creating Hope Program (REACH) // Momentum for Mental Health | Santa Clara County Events and Resources to Support Youth Development | Scoop.it

"Seeking to prevent the early onset of mental illness in the youth population of Santa Clara County through early education and awareness, consistent treatment and community involvement, the Raising Early Awareness and Creating Hope (REACH) Program launched its services in an effort to help address this growing mental health issue.

 

The program, based on the early detection models from the Portland Identification and Early Referral (PIER) Training Institute in Portland, Maine, is a collaboration of efforts between Momentum for Mental Health and Starlight Community Services.  The core mission of REACH is to help detect early warning signs of psychosis that may pose a threat to young adults, and to provide effective support and treatment.  Though often subtle, early symptoms of psychosis can be disabling and affect young people’s ability to complete schoolwork, interact socially, and accomplish daily tasks."...
