Mental Health

Head Start programs play a vital role in supporting the social-emotional and mental health of children and families. The program focuses on ways to help keep little problems little and make bigger problems easier to handle. Protective factors can help develop children's ability to cope so that they can become resilient, heal, and recover. Head Start programs are uniquely positioned to provide protective factors, such as strong, trusting relationships and safe, stable environments that promote healing for children, families, and staff. Services include workshops designed to help with development of children's social-emotional skills both at home and in the classroom, and use of effective discipline strategies. Discussions regarding strategies how to deal with challenging behaviors and providing help during times of change and access community resources are provided.

Anyone interested in learning about these services and more may contact a Head Start Family Advocate. Contact information is located under the Contact Us tab located at the top of this page;
By contacting Ashley Spradlin, Mental Health Services Manager, at or calling 606-789-1600.
