Head Start Mental Health Consultation

Our Head Start Mental Health Consultation provides staff, teachers and parents with support for the social-emotional well-being for children in Head Start classrooms across Hartford and Middlesex counties.

Head Start is a Federal program that promotes the school readiness of children from birth to age five from low-income families by enhancing their cognitive, social, and emotional development. Head Start programs provide a learning environment that supports children’s growth in many areas such as language, literacy, and social and emotional development, emphasizing the role of parents as their child’s first and most important teacher. Head Start helps build relationships with families that support family well-being and many other important areas.
