About Project LAUNCH Georgia

Helping children thrive— body, mind, spirit, heart. Start here.

Our smallest family members are full of potential—but also the most vulnerable. Left untreated, social/behavioral/emotional issues can seriously compromise a child’s long-term success. Together, we can learn about the importance of early detection and our community’s resources for intervention and support.


Mission and Vision

Mission Statement: Georgia’s children, birth to age 8, will have increased access to screening, assessment and referrals to appropriate services to meet their social and emotional needs.

Vision Statement: To inspire, promote, and sustain positive outcomes and holistic wellness across every developmental domain for all Georgia’s children.

  • Integration of behavioral health into primary care settings
