PHSA is currently partnering with a group of researchers from Temple's College of Health Professions and Social Work to conduct a state wide study of the physical and mental health of Head Start and Early Head Start staff and it's impact on their work. These data will provide valuable insight at the program and state level about the experiences of staff and how best to meet their physical and mental health needs. PHSA is excited to bring this opportunity to it's members!
For more information about the study, download this introduction letter that was distributed to programs in January of 2012.
To help programs understand the project and decide how best to participate, PHSA hosted 2 conference calls to answer questions and support programs as they think through the logistics of having their staff complete the on-line survey. You can download the a summary of the questions and answers covered on the call.
Programs who are participating are being asked to fill out and return this information sheet to PHSA.
