Every child has mental health. Know when to reach out for support. 

The Early Childhood Mental Health Support Line is a no-cost, confidential resource for anyone who cares for children under six. The support line helps families and caregivers to better understand and support the wellbeing of young children in their care. 

The consultant on the line can discuss needs, brainstorm appropriate support resources, and connect you to consultation in your community.

Why should I call the Early Childhood Mental Health Support Line?

Everyone has mental health – even babies! Parents and other caregivers play an important role in building children's social-emotional skills such as making friends, caring for others, managing emotions, and resolving conflict peacefully. 

Actively supporting children to develop these skills not only reduces challenging behavior but also helps build stronger relationships with children and their families. When you reach out to the ECMH Support Line you will talk to an experienced consultant who can help you understand what resources and supports are available,  and get you directly connected to a team in your area.
