Early Intervention- Parents Under Pressure Program

The Early Intervention-Parents under Pressure program aims to focus on families with identified vulnerabilities and intervening by building their resilience and parenting strategies to manage the stressors of parenting.

It also focuses on building their resilience to become attuned and connected positive parents.

This program looks at achieving this through early identification by working in partnership with early years settings to identify families that would benefit from an intervention and deploying the Parents Under Pressure Program.

EI PUP could provide therapeutic support for eligible parents in-home or in groups.


  • Have a child between the ages of 2-5 years
  • This program will focus on families that have increased stressors and triggers that will likely result in statutory involvement and higher service system use and dependency
  • Participants will not have, or have had a child protection notification/involvement or integrated family services involvement previously
  • Participants can be identified through the maternal health nurse program, supported playgroups, or early learning centres.
  • Participants could have assessed development needs and have indicators of development delays and at risk of losing engagement in the early learning centre’s or the service system.
