Emotional Vaccines® Partners with Early Learning Coalition of Pasco Hernando to Launch Wellness Initiative for Early Childhood Educators – “Mondays with Mehra” Brings Coping Skills and Emotional Health Resources to Hundreds of Teachers and Parents

TAMPA, FL (February 26, 2024) – Emotional Vaccines®, the emotional health education platform founded by Dr. Rahul N. Mehra, M.D. has partnered with the Early Learning Coalition (ELC) of Pasco and Hernando Counties to support the well-being of early
childhood educators and parents across nearly 300 childcare centers.

The partnership comes at a time of increased global focus on issues like stress and anxiety, and as early learning educators are noticing more challenging child behaviors in the classroom. Emotional Vaccines® is a Tampa-based organization that provides adults and children with science-backed coping skills before these issues become more serious.

“Supporting the educators and parents who nurture our kids is so vital. Bolstering their emotional health and coping strategies extends beyond the classroom and helps foster positive outcomes and behavior at home,” said Rahul N. Mehra, founder of Emotional Vaccines® and board-certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist. “This partnership will provide free access to emotional support with researched-backed coping skills and resilience strategies without charging monthly subscriptions or requiring confusing apps.”

Dubbed “Mondays with Mehra,” the weekly offering will provide ELC teachers and parents with free access to Emotional Vaccines’ video content on managing stress, regulating emotions, and avoiding burnout. Videos will be accessible via QR codes on posters placed in every ELC center. The content library will continue building over the weeks ahead.

“This collaboration will introduce a comprehensive approach that prioritizes the health of early learning educators and the families we serve,” stated Early Learning Coalition Pasco Hernando Executive Director, Steve Knobl Ph.D. “We are excited to share these
invaluable resources with our community. Our goal is to continue to empower and support childcare providers and parents/caregivers through prevention and education.” The “Mondays with Mehra” initiative launches this week.
