Thrive Central MN Mission

To promote healthy relationships and secure connections for young children, prenatal through age 5.

Our Vision

The Greater St. Cloud area is a place where every person promotes and supports the social and emotional wellness of young children, prenatal through age 5. Every young child has loving, secure, connections; families and caregivers have access to the knowledge and the encouragement they need to be successful; professionals share a consistent message about infant and child mental health and are supported through ongoing reflective practices, and systems advance antiracist policies. A whole-family approach is taken across all disciplines.

What is Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health?
