A Day in the Life of an Early Childhood Mental Health Consultant A Series of Real-life Vignettes Illustrating the Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation Process

Social-emotional health is one of the most critical factors in a child’s healthy development and readiness for school and life success—a factor that depends on weaving effective mental health services into programs that support young children, including early care and education.

Early childhood mental health consultation (ECMHC) has been identified as a specific approach to prevent early childhood expulsion and a means to promote successful social, emotional, and behavioral outcomes in infants and young children. ECMHC is primarily an indirect, prevention based service provided within early care and education programs such as child care and preschool for serving children 0-5 (Cohen & Kaufmann, 2005).

Partnering with Families in Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation

Family involvement is critical to quality early childhood mental health consultation. Involving families increases the likelihood that family members will feel valued and help implement strategies at home and thus reinforces the impact of consultation (Center for Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation, n.d.). Early childhood mental health consultants can use information from this tutorial to strengthen their understanding of how to facilitate strong partnerships with families within the consultation approach and overcome common barriers, building a framework within which the quality work begins and develops.
