Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation Toolbox

Find tools that help states, tribes, and communities use IECMHC to promote the mental health and school readiness of young children from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

The Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation (IECMHC) Toolbox offers free interactive planning tools, guides, videos, and other resources to support IECMHC efforts in your state, tribe, or community.  Adults who work with young children can broadly support children’s healthy development, from infancy through the transition to school, by incorporating IECMHC and the resources in the Toolbox into all early childhood programs.

A first-of-its-kind resource for the field of IECMHC, the Toolbox comprises nearly 60 original resources, including PDFs, interactive products, and videos. The Toolbox offers:

  • Information about the latest research and best practices for IECMHC in infant and early childhood settings where consultation occurs, such as home visiting, early care, and education
  • Resources and strategies on best practices to help fill the gap in areas where additional guidance is needed to advance the field of IECMHC
