Infant/Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation (I/ECMHC)
The goal of I/ECMHC is to increase the capacity of home visiting programs to identify and address the mental health needs of young children and families, and to instill reflective practices into their organizational culture.
It is a multi-level preventative intervention that teams mental health professionals with home visitors and supervisors.
The Illinois Children’s Mental Health Partnership provides I/ECMHC — along with training/technical assistance — to a variety of home visiting programs throughout Illinois.
