Wyoming tries to address the growing numbers of children with emotional and mental health issues.
Wyoming – Recently day cares and elementary schools in Wyoming started noticing a growing number of children with serious emotional and mental health issues. The state eventually made addressing the problem a priority.
Because of this the University of Wyoming of College of Education developed the Early Childhood Mental Health Professional Certificate program and more recently the Rocky Mountain Center for Play Therapy studies. And those programs are helping identify children around the state that need help. Bob Beck reports.
