Early Childhood Mental Health
There is convincing research evidence about the importance of early childhood development for laying the foundation for competence and coping skills throughout life. There is equally convincing evidence about the influence of the period from birth to six on antisocial behaviour and mental health problems later in life. Early childhood mental health services aim to enhance the well-being of all children, and minimize or avoid behavioural and emotional problems in children with special needs.
Knowledge Transfer, Knowledge Exchange, & EBP Implementation
The transfer of knowledge about, and the actual implementation of Evidence-Based Practices are highly complex processes. CMHO believes that the study of these processes is just as important as the study of the evidence-based practices themselves.
