Abstract: The Future Families Program is a collaborative infant and early childhood mental health program with a multiagency focus to service delivery. It is a prevention and early intervention program which works in partnership with families with severe and complex needs that have infants or young children conception to 3 years, and are at risk of experiencing disrupted attachment relationships. By building capacity, building connectedness and building community, the Future Families Program aims to improve access to services, better co-ordinate the support that is available to infants and young children and their families, facilitate the development of secure attachments between parents and their infants and young children, enhance parenting skills, encourage families to develop a wider range of relationships within their community and provide parents with the hope that they can change the future.
