Prevention 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.
