Project ABC Presents “Me and My Shadow Family Fun Day”

May 11, 2013

In celebration of National Children’s Mental Health Day, Project ABC co-hosted “Me and My Shadow Family Fun Day,” a community event for caregivers, care providers, family and community members working with or parenting children 0-5 years old. Activities were designed to assist adults in strengthening bonds with children through mirroring, modeling, exploration and play, using items that can easily be found and experiences that can easily be repeated. Simultaneously, adults benefitted from opportunities to engage in relaxation and mindfulness exercises, be guided in partnering with their children to create art together, and hear from experts providing Early Childhood Mental Health and Early Care and Education services.

Project ABC is a collaboration of Children’s Institute, Inc., the Los Angeles County Departments of Children and Family Services and Mental Health, the University of Southern California, For the Child, Pacific Asian Counseling Services, and TIES for Families. Project ABC is funded through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
