Family Connections: A Mental Health Consultation Model

Explore Family Connections, a preventive, systemwide mental health consultation and training approach to strengthen the capacity of Early Head Start and Head Start staff. Staff can use these resources and training modules to work with families dealing with parental depression and related adversities, with children in classrooms and in the home, and to engage and support parents struggling with adversities. These materials were developed by the Family Connections Project at Boston Children’s Hospital.
