Foundations for Success (FFS) is a five-year initiative designed to put in place a county-wide system of care for early childhood mental health in Ramsey County, Minnesota. More than 100 community partners are working to assure that high quality services reach children where they are, when they need help. FFS offers mental health services that were previously unavailable or in short supply for young children, birth through age five. Services represent the full continuum of care, including prevention, early identification, intervention, and intensive treatment.
