It’s easy to know when your child needs help dealing with a fever or a broken bone. But mental health problems can sometimes be harder to identify.

Intervening early to address behavioral health issues has a significant and positive impact on a child’s ability to bond with family, do better in school, and adjust well socially.

E-SMART is an Early Childhood System of Care expansion (funded through SAMHSA) within Carroll County, MD.  The program aims to coordinate and expand behavioral health services for children 0-8 in the community.  The overarching goal is to increase early access to appropriate behavioral health services in order to help children function better at home, in school, in the community, and throughout life.

The E-SMART services are provided in collaboration with: 

Carroll County Youth Service Bureau

Carroll County Health Department

Carroll County Public Schools
