Making the Most of Your Infant/Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation Services

Infant/early childhood mental health consultation (I/ECMHC) is an effective strategy for addressing young children's challenging behaviors. At the same time, I/ECMHC supports young children's social and emotional development. The Head Start and Early Head Start program supports the I/ECMHC model through the Head Start Program Performance Standards. The Standards require that a mental health professional be onsite to provide mental health consultation. In this session, learn more about the role of the mental health consultant in early child care and education. Also, find resources for effective strategies to help design, develop, or sustain your mental health consultation services and system.
