One in five children in the United States suffers from a diagnosable mental health disorder. Many young children, between the ages of 0-5, will manifest the beginnings of some of these problems through behavioral difficulties. By providing parents with parenting tips, connecting them to local resources and educating them about the free assessments they can access through the Riverside County Department of Mental Health and Family Service Association, First 5 Riverside is hoping to make a tangible difference in our community with the Growing Healthy Minds Campaign.
