Infant & Early Childhood Mental Health

Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health (IECMH) is best defined as “the ability to love well and grow well.” Our IECMH services seek to support caregivers and children 0-72 months of age to reach that goal. Welcoming babies and young children into a family often brings change and change is hard. Our IECMH services are designed to work with both the caregiver and child to support the relationship, support the caregivers stress level, and address situations that might cause building a relationship with young children to be more difficult.  These services always welcome the child and caregiver for all sessions and the work is to support the pair together. Common referrals for IECMH services include, but are not limited to:

  • Parental Separation or Divorce

  • Caregiver Domestic Violence

  • Chronic Illness/Conditions for the young child and/or caregiver

  • Foster Care

  • Domestic or International Adoption

  • Car Accidents, Dog Bite, or other similar traumatic events

  • Addition of a new sibling

  • Caregiver engaged in active recovery for substance abuse
