About Project Connect NBRC
Project Connect NBRC is a three-year project that focused on mental health and wellness of young children (birth-five years old). The project, supported through funds from the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) from the California Department of Developmental Services (DDS), was specifically intended to identify and address critical need areas within Napa, Sonoma, and Solano Counties. The aim of the project was to promote the development of an inter-organizational system of coordinated, culturally appropriate infant-family and early childhood mental health services that support young children's social-emotional health and well-being in these three counties. For further detail, please see the Project Overview or download the Project Connect NBRC Framework and Implementation Manual.

Assessment and Planning Resources for an Early Childhood Mental Health System of Care Now Available for Download
Project Connect's Leadership Council and Task Teams have created three Early Childhood Mental Health System resources for use by agencies and communities seeking to improve different aspects of their ECMH systems.
The ECMH Community Planning Tool enables a community to create an overview of their existing Early Childhood Mental Health System and use that information to use existing resources more effectively and to prioritize improvement and expansion efforts.
The Universal Screening System Guidance supports a community's efforts to plan, implement, or improve a Universal Screening System for ECMH, by identifying key elements as well as strategies and tools for creating or utilizing those elements.
The ECMH Professional Development Self-Assessment Tool is designed to provide an overview of current areas of expertise for an individual, agency, or community, allowing for more effective use of existing resources and targeted professional development planning.
