Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation (IECMHC) is an evidence-informed, multilevel mental health service that pairs a mental health professional with other providers who offer services to infants and young children and their families. They collaborate with providers to promote and enhance the social-emotional wellbeing of all involved participants. This capacity-building endeavor is aimed at increasing social-emotional awareness and knowledge, enhancing reflective functioning, building confidence and competence, and promoting culturally responsive and equity-informed practice in the adults that support young children. Please refer to the website of the Center of Excellence for IECMHC for the most up-to-date information (iecmhc.org).
