Abstract: Mental health is an international public health issue; ∼20% of children are affected by externalizing (behavioral) or internalizing (emotional) problems. Infant, preschool, and elementary school developmental periods provide the foundations for brain and self-regulation skill development. National longitudinal population data showed that a small pool of risks predicted children's mental health symptoms consistently, situated in the immediate family context and present from a young age. Knowledge of these key risks is informing randomized prevention trials.
