The Center of Excellence for Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation (IECMHC)

The Center of Excellence for Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation (IECMHC) promotes the widespread adoption of mental health consultation as an effective approach to supporting the social and emotional development of young children. IECMHC builds adults’ skills in order to best equip them to promote social and emotional development, prevent behavioral issues, and address developmental challenges among infants and young children. The Center of Excellence offers interactive planning tools, guides, videos, and other resources to help states, tribes, and communities expand their mental health consultation efforts, including helping to build the evidence base through rigorous evaluation efforts.
