For Training & Technical Assistance (T&TA) Providers

Materials for Training & Technical Assistance (T&TA) ProvidersThe Office of Head Start encourages Head Start and Early Head Start programs to access  training and technical assistance (T/TA) to achieve high-quality implementation of the performance standards. Head Start and Early Head Start programs have their own program funds to hire local, state or national experts to provided specialized training and technical assistance related to early childhood metal health.

Currently, there are more than 40 Head Start Performance  Standards that relate to mental health. Programs need access to evidence-based strategies to promote mental wellness in families, staff and children. They also need practical tools to help children who may be at higher risk for mental health problems, due to family or community risk factors. And Head Start programs are always seeking effective strategies to address challenging behavior in young children.
The products developed by the CECMHC are designed to give tools to T/TA providers to:

  • help HS programs assess the quality of their approach to mental health;
  • build capacity to support and sustain evidence-based strategies in their Head Start programs; and
  • provide guidance and resources that can support a continuum of high-quality mental health services and supports to children, families and staff in Head Start programs.
