Vista Hill’s PROMOTE! program seeks to further the educational progress and well-being of school students between 3 to 8 years of age that are at risk for developing problem behaviors and mental health conditions. PROMOTE! is a three-way partnership of Vista Hill, Escondido Union Elementary School District and the County of San Diego – Behavioral Health Services.
Our PROMOTE! Program has two main components:
- Incredible Students – An evidence based approach to screening, service recommendations and participation in the Incredible Years social-emotional prevention curriculum.
- Parent Connect – Parent peer model to reach out to the families of children identified as being at-risk. Parents may receive education, training and support, resource referrals and participation in the student’s education.
PROMOTE! staff are comprised of master’s level mental health clinicians and parent engagement specialists using a Promotora community model.
Who is Eligible?
Escondido Union Elementary School District students identified by the District social workers.
PROMOTE! is a new program and will post outcome data in subsequent years.
