Narrative

The Together for Kids program (TFK) provides a comprehensive mental health promotion, prevention, and intervention model of service comprised of the following components: 1) infant, toddler, preschool, and school age (ages 5-13) behavioral health consultation for educators and families; 2) trainings for educators and families on a variety of topics related to social-emotional health in children and 3) referrals for more intensive services (e.g., child/parent psychotherapy, psychological assessment). Services are designed to promote social-emotional wellness in children, assist educators/families to understand and appropriately respond to challenging behaviors, strengthen home-school partnerships, and reduce suspensions and expulsions from early education and care settings. The goal is to assist children to become enjoyable family members, valued friends, and successful learners so that they will develop a “foundation for success” in kindergarten and beyond.
