    Schools, community organizations, and treatment settings (e.g., social service agencies, outpatient mental health centers, early care and education centers, health care settings, etc.) face growing pressures to utilize empirically-supported prevention and early intervention programs to meet the mental health needs of young children and their families. Funding sources are increasingly requiring the delivery of empirically supported treatments (ESTs), and mounting evidence supports the use of such programs over usual care.

    We describe two evidence-based prevention and treatment models for young children and families that are being adopted widely in Rhode Island, the Incredible Years Series and Family Check Up. We will (1) provide a brief overview of the two programs; (2) discuss the host of challenges that settings face in their efforts to adopt, implement, and sustain these types of programs; (3) introduce training and support services available through Bradley Hospital Center for Evidence Based Practices to support successful adoption, implementation and sustainability of ESTs.
