Right Start for Infant Mental Health

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 Services

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
