The Early Childhood Mental Health (ECMHC) team has recorded a series of relaxation exercises in English and Spanish. These exercises may be used by Head Start and Early Head Start families and staff to help reduce stress.

Our hope is that after listening to one or more of these recordings, families and staff will return to their daily activities feeling refreshed and re-energized. Enjoy!
