A new paper from Harvard’s Center on the Developing Child explores evidence on early childhood experiences and lifelong mental and physical health to encourage stakeholder to think more broadly than just indicators of early learning. The paper focuses on the interactions and adaptations of biological systems in the body with each other and the environment as context for longterm health outcomes, including chronic illness. Authors recommend continuing to support responsive relationships, reducing sources of stress for children and caregivers, and strengthening adult caregivers’ core life skills. #mentalhealth
