Right Start for Infant Mental Health
Right Start is a mental health program for pregnant women and families with children ages birth to 5 years. We provide help when there are concerns about a child’s emotions, behavior or development, or when parenting becomes difficult.
Our team of psychologists and therapists work exclusively with infants, toddlers, preschoolers and their families to offer comprehensive, trauma-informed, relationship-based interventions including:
- Child and family therapy (talking with you about your baby)
- Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP)
- Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
- Parent Child Groups
- Case Management for enrolled families
- Psychiatric evaluation
We are also able to provide services in the home or community when a higher level of care (such as more frequent or longer sessions) is needed, or when there are barriers preventing attendance in the office.
Who We Serve:
We serve any family with a child between the ages of birth to five years who lives in Denver County, if any of the following are true:
- You think your baby is unusually quiet or uninterested in you

- You’re worried about your young child’s temper tantrums or aggressive behavior
- Your child is having difficulty coping with scary/traumatic events
