It is important that the members of the planning team understand and value a holistic approach to mental health services. Planning team members should also be familiar with “best practices” in mental health consultation. Another good resource for general early childhood mental health services in Head Start/Early Head Start is the What Works Report. You will want to spend some time at the first meeting developing a common understanding of what is meant by “mental health” that is developmentally appropriate and incorporates cultural considerations. In addition, the discussion should address the importance of support child, family, and staff mental health through a program-wide approach.
