All Mississippi children will have a healthy beginning.
To make sure that Mississippi children have an emotionally healthy beginning by
supporting them, their families and their communities.
MS BuDS targets Mississippi children ages birth to 5 with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges.
Fundamentally, we seek to increase public awareness that children from ages birth to 5 can have social, emotional and behavioral challenges, identify these children early in their development through universal screening, and develop a competent workforce for evaluation and treatment of young children with these challenges.
