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.
This programmatic consultation is a multi-level preventative intervention that teams mental health professionals with home visitors and supervisors.
Infant/Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation is an initiative of the Office of Early Childhood Development. The Illinois model of I/ECMHC can be found here. A brief summary describing what Infant Early Childhood is available here in multiple languages:
