Head Start / Early Head Start
Providing prevention and early intervention services in childhood can prevent problems in at-risk and high-risk low-income populations, increase access to mental health treatment for those with identified needs, and promote mental health wellness in all children.
Pacific Clinics launched Head Start/Early Head Start programming in 2013 to support young children ages 0-5 and their families and caregivers from low-income neighborhoods in Altadena, Glendale, and Pasadena.
We provide comprehensive high quality early childhood education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services. We conduct a developmental screening for each student, and can identify and support children who may have a mental illness or severe emotional disturbance. Our mental health 0-5 specialists work with Head Start/Early Head Start teachers to ensure these children receive the behavioral health treatment they need to be successful in school and in life.
