Early Childhood Behavioral Health Support

The Early Childhood Behavioral Health Support Program seeks to meet the needs of Island County parents and caregivers and their Birth to Five-Year-Olds, as they work to create healthy environments for optimal social and emotional growth and development.

Services provided are:

- In home visitation for families with Birth to Five-Year-Old children, focused on promoting attachment and early nurturing relationships.

- Prenatal and postnatal visitation and support, especially for young isolated or at-risk parents or caregivers.

- One-on-one Parent Coaching to address individual concerns, increase parenting confidence, and encourage capacities for future parenting.

- Areas addressed may include any aspect of children's social-emotional development including challenging behaviors, developmental milestones, or daily routines.

Any Island County resident who is requesting or seeking help in their role as a parent can receive services.  Parents and caregivers do not need to qualify based on any screening, diagnosis, or professional referral.  A special focus will be placed on those who may not qualify for already existing community resources.
