Preschool 0-5 Programs include two components, Set-4-School and Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) Mobile Services. Evidence based and evidence informed services are accessible in the clinic, on mobile units out in the community, and at school sites across the county.

The Riverside County Children and Families Commission, First 5 Riverside awarded funding to the Riverside County Department of Mental Health for a Mental Health Initiative (MHI) project, entitled, Set-4-School.
Set-4-School provides a comprehensive continuum of early identification, early intervention, and treatment services designed to promote social competence and decrease the development of disruptive behavior disorders among children ages 0-5.

Three Mobile PEI treatment units provide various interventions to children and families in select communities across all three regions of Riverside County. Services are provided to families who may not otherwise receive services due to transportation or other geographic barriers. Each vehicle additionally is equipped to function independently to support disaster relief centers in emergency situations.  They are also used to provide community outreach, education, and linkage to services during functions such as health fairs, school events, and other community activities.  All activities are intended to help to reduce stigma and provide positive outreach to families that may want help with their child’s social and emotional development in a community setting.
