New children’s health program now available at Muskingum Behavioral Health

Muskingum Behavioral Health recently introduced the Healthy Alternatives for Little Ones (HALO) program, thanks to funding from the United Way of Muskingum, Perry and Morgan counties. This evidence-based curriculum is designed for children between the ages of 3 and 6, with a focus on health education and prevention.

The HALO program consists of a series of lessons tailored to the developmental stage of young children, highlighting the importance of healthy growth and development. By providing information and building skills for preschoolers, the program aims to reduce the risk of future substance abuse, including alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Additionally, HALO promotes healthy eating habits and physical activity to support overall well-being in young children.

Through the support of United Way funding, Muskingum Behavioral Health is able to offer this important curriculum to preschool-aged children in the community. By investing in early intervention and prevention programs like HALO, organizations like Muskingum Behavioral Health are working to create a healthier, more resilient future for our youth.
