Mental Health

  • We seek to identify and address mental health concerns in the early childhood period, as well as to promote mental health among all Head Start children. The Mental Health portion of the program focuses on aiding the development of positive self-worth, self-regulation, respect for individual differences, and appropriate social skills. Accomplishments in these areas will affect a child's ability to play, love, learn, and work within the home, school, and other environments. All fit together to form the foundation of a mentally healthy person.
