Abstract

Iowa’s 1st Five Healthy Mental Development Initiative is a public-private partnership between the Iowa Department of Public Health and primary care providers in 88 Iowa counties. Since 2007, the 1st Five Healthy Mental Development Initiative has supported the healthy cognitive, social, and emotional development of Iowa’s youngest children through cost effective early detection and early intervention services. Experts agree that early detection of developmental delays during the first five years increases the effectiveness of interventions and improves long-term outcomes for our youngest children. When children are connected to early intervention services, we can lessen the burden on Iowa tax payers by reducing the impact of developmental and behavioral problems on our state’s health, education, child welfare, and juvenile justice systems.
