The county’s Department of Mental Health identified an urgent need for prevention and early intervention services to address the needs of underserved populations, especially young children. To improve access to effective mental health care, mobile clinics now provide services to families with children through the age of seven in geographically isolated regions using evidence-based approaches that support social and emotional development.
