Mental Health Services

CCRC’s goal is to support children’s mental health, social and emotional wellbeing, and overall health. We contract with mental health professionals from our community agencies with knowledge about child development, individual and family therapy, parenting, and classroom management. Support from consultants is available to all families enrolled in the program with prior parental consent. The program staff and consultants offer parents the opportunity to learn about their child’s emotional development and share their concerns to identify what supports are needed. Families interested in receiving services can do so by connecting with program staff to complete a referral for services.

Some of the mental health services are:

  • Social emotional screening of children
  • One on one consultation
  • Parent education/workshops
  • Staff training
  • Community agency referrals
