Mental Wellness Community Partnerships

We rely on our community partners to provide the mental health assessment and treatment services SETA Head Start cannot provide. Similarly, we have an advocacy role to make sure that the needs of our over 5,000 children are heard by professionals and programs in the community.

Sacramento County Mental Health 0-5 System of Care

SETA Head Start and its delegate agencies are working closely with the Sacramento County Department of Health and Human Services Mental Health Division to facilitate access of mental health services provided to children who have Medi-Cal, California’s Medicaid program. Universal forms are employed in referring children to the therapeutic school programs. In addition, Head Start participates in the training offered by the County and case consultation groups facilitated by the psychologist in the 0-5 System of Care program.

Health Services Advisory Committee

We have a Head Start Health Services Advisory Committee that is comprised of professionals and community members. They provide guidance and advice on our program policies in health and safety, nutrition and mental health.

Community Partnership Advisory Committee

Our Community Partnership Advisory Committee is a group of community partners who provide family support services and economic development opportunities. By working closely with these groups, we can increase our capacity to help families enhance or sustain self-sufficiency.


We are open to Social Work and Psychology Interns who would like to experience working in addressing the social and emotional needs of young children and their families. In the past they have become involved in facilitating children’s groups, presenting workshops and case management.
