Help Me Grow San Mateo County is a collaborative system led by First 5 San Mateo County in partnership with Stanford Medicine Children’s Health and AbilityPath. It’s a part of the national Help Me Grow network, a growing coalition of states, communities and individuals working together to improve early childhood systems. We believe that children thrive when families know where to turn with their challenges and concerns, and when they receive support that aligns with their values and priorities. Our goal is to connect families quickly and easily to the information and resources they need to support their child’s growth.
Additionally, the Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics clinic at Stanford Medicine Children’s Health conducts a monthly Help Me Grow Roundtable Collaborative. This is a case conferencing opportunity where medical providers can confidentially discuss their patient’s referrals and care plan with a broader community of service providers. The patient must be under age 6 and reside in San Mateo County. As the Child Health Care Provider Outreach team, we join in other county-wide efforts to build a seamless system for young children and to offer our technical expertise wherever requested.
