Sesame Street in Communities Partnership

Thriving Mind and Sesame Street in Communities

Sesame Street in Communities builds on an almost 50-year commitment to addressing kids’ developmental, physical, and emotional needs. The time-tested research model and thorough testing with families and providers ensures that these resources have a measurable impact in the lives of parents and children.

Thriving Mind South Florida has partnered with SSIC to foster healthy development in families with children ages 0-5 in the Thriving Mind’s network who have been affected by substance use and mental health problems. Using the SSI professional development resources, this partnership will train 200 key stakeholders including  staff who work with families of children ages 0 to 5 in the Thriving Mind network to build system capacity, for children to grow into productive and successful adults, promoting healthy behaviors, and supporting families to help children thrive. The partnership will create a tiered training approach that will include Tier 1 as the Thriving Mind contracted healthcare providers and Tier 2 is the Miami-Dade County community ecosystem that supports overall child well-being.
