Early childhood mental health
In addition to assessments and mentoring, we can offer families support for social/emotional issues through the Community Support Team (CST). The CST is a multi-agency team funded by HB1451. The team can provide funding for needed services, for example, counseling, play therapy, parenting support, etc.
The CST meets the second Wednesday of each month from 12 noon to 3 pm in Glenwood Springs. CST meetings are a roundtable, community-based approach to provide support to families of children who are experiencing difficulty in their homes or childcare facilities.
For families experiencing behavioral or social/emotional difficulties, please contact the Child Find office in your local school district.
Through the Childcare Program, we can offer training and professional development opportunities for providers and staff, as well as strategies for behavior management and assistance developing family partnerships.
