MHSA Prevention and Early Intervention OverviewPrevention involves reducing risk factors or stressors, building protective factors and skills, and increasing support. Prevention also promotes positive cognitive, social, and emotional development and encourages a state of well-being that allows individuals to function well in the face of changing and sometimes challenging circumstances.

Early Intervention is directed toward individuals and families for whom a short duration (usually less than 1 year), relatively low intensity intervention is appropriate to measurably improve mental health problems or concerns. Early intervention efforts can result in a reduced need for more extensive mental health treatment or services or prevent a problem from getting worse.
