NHSA is hosting a webinar next Wednesday, May 22nd at 3:00 pm ET in recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month. It will focus on best practices and strategies for utilizing mental health consultation services to support the many unique needs of your Head Start community.

Attendees will hear from Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health experts about the importance of collecting and analyzing data to understand your program and community needs for mental health services and ideas for how to utilize mental health consultation models to meet those needs. This webinar will also feature Head Start program directors who will share their challenges and successes in implementing mental health consultation models and services to support the needs of their children, families, and staff.

Why is this important? Mental health consultation is an essential strategy for improving the mental well-being of the children, families, and staff in Head Start programs everywhere. Head Start programs are required to secure consistent and sufficient access to mental health consultation services for children and families but many times, the growing need outweighs access to high-quality mental health services. Head Start programs across the country are discovering innovative ways to meet the unique needs of their individual communities.
