All Hands on Deck: Partnering with Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultants to Implement the Pyramid Model

Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation (IECMHC) is an evidence-based approach that pairs mental health professionals with people who work with young children and their families. Professionals who provide IECMHC can be critical partners in the implementation of the Pyramid Model within early childhood education and care programs including assisting programs with concerns such as trauma, crisis in communities, staff wellness, and connections with community services. The webinar panel will discuss the relationship between the mental health consultant and the Pyramid Model leadership team and the supports that might be provided by the mental health consultant to build the capacity of the program and personnel as they provide services to young children and their families.
