Social-Emotional Development and Mental Health of Young Children

The Department and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently issued a Dear Colleague letter https://www2.ed.gov/documents/students/hhs... with recommendations to support the social-emotional development and mental health of young children. HHS will host a series of videos https://cblcc.acf.hhs.gov/shareable-media/... throughout the summer that support young children’s mental health and well-being.

The Department launched the National Parents and Families Engagement Council (the Council) https://www.ed.gov/news/press-releases/us-... in June to facilitate strong and effective relationships between schools and parents, families, and caregivers. The Council consists of parent, family, and caregiver representatives from national organizations that will work with the Department to identify constructive ways to help families engage at the local level.
