The “I’m Here For You Now” Program
The “I’m Here For You Now" program welcomes trained Early Childhood Mental Health Consultants into your classroom to implement the program, which is designed to build upon natural resilience.
The program uses a book developed to incorporate developmentally interactive activities to help guide families, parents, and young children through a process of discovery and recovery. It includes training for teachers and staff, parent engagement, discussion facilitation, and in class assistance.
The program helps adults understand how toddlers and preschoolers cope in times of stress and uncertainty, and identifies children who may be at risk for long term developmental or social-emotional problems.
