Missouri Project LAUNCH promotes child wellness for children ages birth to eight through a collaborative effort between the Missouri Department of Mental Health and the Department of Health and Senior Services. It works to build an effective and sustainable early childhood system where programs and services are comprehensive, coordinated, accessible, and adequately funded. Missouri Project LAUNCH selected north St. Louis City, an area with high-risk indicators of child well-being, as its pilot community to develop initiatives that support the well-being of all children and their families. Through these efforts, Missouri Project LAUNCH plans to implement lessons learned in other areas in Missouri.
