Young children, even babies, have mental health needs. Project ABC (PABC) believes that providing services when children are starting to have struggles prevents more serious mental health challenges in the future. We have also learned that the best way to help children is by building strong relationships. We focus on relationships between children and caregivers, between families and service partners, and between service partners and the community.

Project ABC Services for families and service partners:

  • Family therapy
  • Relationship-based therapeutic interventions
  • Assessment services
  • Parent support groups
  • Infant massage groups
  • Coordination with schools, other service agencies, and professionals
  • Therapeutic preschool programs
  • Dyadic education with videotaped feedback
  • Caregiver-Infant or Caregiver-Child therapy (dyadic therapy)
  • Training and consultation for parents and professionals

Project ABC serves families of children 0-5:

  • When there are concerns about the child’s behavior or emotional well-being
  • Who are in out-of-home care or at risk for out-of-home placement

If you or someone you know has a question or concerns about a child’s behavior, contact someone on the PABC team.
