Early Childhood Health & Wellness
Health and wellness is a fundamental component of a child's development and ongoing learning. Health in early childhood can improve learning and well being through adulthood. Important components include mental health, physical health, behavioral health, reaching developmental milestones, therapies (occupational, physical, speech, etc).
In order to have the utmost health, a comprehensive approach that incorporates these important components should be delivered to all children. The Council works to support families having this approach and supports health providers in offering this approach through partnership.

Upcoming Events / Meetings
The Health and Wellness Committee meet the second Tuesday of every month at 8am, locations may change.
The Health and Wellness committee looks to include partners in all realms of health and wellness in order to build partnership and coordinate care of patients who have multiple health providers. Our goal is to ensure that children have a comprehensive approach to health care through the model of medical home.
Meetings are networking, discussing client issues (confidentiality) and problem solving, and seeking to create a stronger system by creating ways to open communication between health providers and ensure that health care is comprehensive.
