You can access “just in time” support by calling 1-877-524-2422 M–F 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Mental health specialists and/or consultants offer one-on-one support for timely, non-emergency guidance regarding specific questions or concerns related to infant, toddler, and young children’s social, emotional, and behavioral health. If the representative is unavailable or calls are received after hours, you can expect to receive a call back within 24 hours. All Helpline calls are confidential.
The Helpline can support you with:
- children who may be at risk of temporary or permanent removal from the child care placement;
- specific questions or concerns related to infant, toddler, and young children’s social, emotional, and behavioral health; and
- linkages to resources.
