- Are you providing licensed childcare for children whose parents are essential workers?
- Is the stress of the pandemic impacting your well-being, your family, your business and the children in your care?
- Would you like support?
Mental Health Consultation focuses on building adult capacity to support children’s social-emotional development and includes a combination of training, supported skill building, active listening, exploration of the childcare provider’s/teacher’s attitudes and beliefs about situations, and problem solving.
The service is provided by licensed mental health professionals throughout Minnesota who have training and expertise in early childhood development, early childhood mental health, family systems and consultation.
During the pandemic, five sessions of 1-2 hour duration are offered to any licensed childcare sites. To participate beyond five hours, a childcare site must be enrolled (or become enrolled) in Parent Aware. Consultations can be Video or Telephone, and can be scheduled at any mutually agreed upon time. There is no cost for this service.
