CRADLE has received a grant from Mental Health America Indiana to hold a free training for professionals in our community (and of course other communities are welcome too) who want to learn more about Children’s Mental Health specifically mental health starting with Mom prenatally to the post birth age of 5. I am attaching the flyer. Please help us spread the word (our goal is 100 attendees). Let me know if you plan to attend and what agency you represent. We have funding to purchase the speakers book Tackling the Tough Stuff: A Home Visitor’s Guide to Supporting Families at Risk for up to 31 organizations who would benefit the most.
I am also attaching a really nice brochure about Infant and Toddler Mental Health that does an excellent job explaining what Infant and Toddler Mental Health is.
Michelle Shelton, Scott County Partnership, recently spoke at the Lexington K-Kids meeting to thank the students for helping with the Salvation Army bell ringing over the Christmas season raising money for the Scott County Clearinghouse. Pictured are Michelle Shelton, Faculty Advisor Lee Anna Willett and the LES K-Kids. Michelle explained how the bell ringing helps the Clearinghouse provide goods, services and support to needy families in Scott County. All the money raised by the Salvation Army here in Scott County stays in Scott County to help Clearinghouse serve our community. The students had fun ringing the bell and singing Christmas carols and now understand they can have fun while providing a needed service for the community. K-Kids is a Kiwanis family club designed to teach leadership through community service.
