Leap's Community Conversation on "Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health 101" was our largest to date with over 130 registered guests. Abbey Schneider led the 2 hour presentation covering the basics of early childhood mental health best practices and common interventions. A supporting team of experts also presented on various community resources available in Larimer County, including information on obtaining the Infant Mental Health Endorsement, Early Intervention services, play therapy, pregnancy-related mood disorders, mental health consultation services, referral support and more. Abbey and the team touched on a number of topics that Leap will further explore in the following months.
