CASA Mental Health Consultation to Home Visitation Programs
CASA partners with Home Visitation Programs to support healthy growth and development in infants and preschool children. CASA’s role is to identify mental health issues as early as possible and to teach caregivers and other community partners how to support the child’s mental wellness.
CASA therapists provide on-site, outreach, and consultation to staff in the Home Visitation program.
In some cases, they also work directly with families, providing them with strategies and referrals to specialized services as needed.
Areas of focus include the child’s behaviour, anxiety, sleep, and attention.
Who It’s For
Children between birth and five years of age with behavioural or emotional concerns.
Children are identified for services by Home Visitation program staff.
Families serviced by the following Home Visitation Programs: Strathcona County Home Visitation, Leduc County Family Connections, Family Futures Resource Network, and Alberta Parenting for the Future (Stony Plain, Spruce Grove and Parkland County).
Families are referred to the program by Home Visitation staff. If you think your family may benefit from services, speak with your Home Visitation worker.
