About Us

The Child Health and Development Institute is a catalyst for improving the health, mental health and early care systems for children in Connecticut. To learn more about CHDI please visit our parent website at www.chdi.org.

We developed www.kidsmentalhealthinfo.com to help parents and caregivers understand more about their child’s mental health issues. The website contains many local and national resources and covers a range of topics on Child Trauma, Mental Health in Schools, Infant Mental Health and Best and Evidence-Based Practices. The website also has training information and resources for Early Care and Education providers as well as for Pediatric providers. Additionally, Pediatric providers can take an online training and they may qualify for CME credits and be directed to participate in a Maintenance of Certification project.
