Women's and Children's Health Section: Children and Youth Branch

Children and Youth Contacts

The Children and Youth Branch helps all North Carolina children to grow, develop and be healthy. We do this through health promotion, prevention, early identification, treatment and intervention. With the help of the Children and Youth Branch Family Partners for Children with Special Health Care Needs, Branch programs and services are offered within family-centered, community-based systems of care. The Branch manages many programs and services.
