awareness and education
By raising awareness and improving knowledge and understanding of social emotional development in young children ,we are able to to increase attention and community support for this important health issue. Of particular concern in our region, is the number of young children who have gone through adverse childhood experiences resulting in early childhood trauma. Beginning in the Fall of 2021, the Coalition will expand the focus of its "The More We Know, the Better They Grow " campaign to include social emotional development and childhood trauma. Utilizing existing resources, developed by authoritative source, Coalition members will work together in a coordinated manner to share key messages through social media , articles, tips sheets and educational events. .
