Promoting social emotional development
New York City Project LAUNCH (Linking Actions for Unmet Needs in Children's Health) serves children and families in two of New York City's most high need communities—East Harlem in Manhattan and Hunts Point in the South Bronx. The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene in collaboration with community partners aims to promote the social and emotional development of children from birth through age eight years and reshape the early childhood system by implementing strategies, engaging families, promoting awareness of children's mental health, conducting workforce development, facilitating community collaboration, and evaluating the results.
NYC Project LAUNCH is funded through a multi-year grant by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, to the FPHNY.
