What's Happening Now

Fast Track was piloted in four communities: Durham, Nashville, rural Pennsylvania and Seattle. The intervention was based on the hypothesis that improving child competencies, parenting effectiveness, school context, and school-home communications will, over time, improve psychopathology from early childhood through adulthood. Researchers continue to evaluate the long-term impacts of this comprehensive intervention.
