Project LAUNCH Evaluation
The purpose of Project LAUNCH Michigan is to improve the comprehensive wellness of children 0-8 through expanding and enhancing the early childhood system. This will be accomplished by using a public health approach to wellness, increasing the use of evidence-based practices, expanding the integration of behavioral health into primary health, and developing a local sustainable model that can be replicated throughout the state.
