Early Childhood Mental Health Facilitation – Rooted in Relationships
The PPC provided facilitation to Saline County stakeholders in early childhood mental health to reach the goal of all children ages 0- 5 in Saline County experiencing positive social and emotional growth. The stakeholder group objective was to create a work plan for the county and to select a fiscal agency for a grant through the Nebraska Children and Families Foundation. Stakeholder group members represented public health, schools, social services, law enforcement, public and private childcare entities, hospitals. The group collected data from Head Start, reviewed system of care and community assessment documents, and then identified priorities for the county to address to meet their priories. A work plan was developed for stakeholders to guide them through the 3 year process.
