A 10-month training program for Family Support Professionals working with young children and families

The Irving B. Harris Early Childhood Mental Health Training Program (ECMHTP) is pleased to announce enrollment for the next “Family Support Professionals” (FSP) learning cohort which begins September 2018. The FSP cohort will target the following professionals working in programs serving families with infants and young children: Family Partners; Family Advocates; Family Navigators; Community Health Outreach Workers; Home Visitors; and those providing targeted services to fathers, including men working in family support programs.

This training is supported by the Irving Harris Foundation and Title IV-E funds. Priority is given to applicants who work for agencies who serve children in foster care or children at risk for out-of-home placement. Whether you are working in public health, early care and education, community clinics, family-run agencies, or other settings where you are supporting families with young children, the Harris ECMHTP will provide learning opportunities relevant to your work.

The FSP Program requires a 10-month commitment from September 22, 2018 to June 7, 2019.
