Infant and early childhood mental health

Infant mental health is a community-based program that helps families with children ages 0 to 5 years old by providing services in both natural environments and clinical settings.

Research shows that a consistent, warm relationship with a caretaker provides the basis for healthy development. That relationship impacts the rest of a child’s life. Infant mental health treatment focuses on enhancing the parent-child bond and is designed to maximize strengths and reduce stressors. Clinical interventions include child-parent psychotherapy, family counseling, play therapy and behavior management education. In this program, parents learn:

  • How to raise emotionally healthy children
  • The importance of the caregiver-child relationship
  • Developmentally appropriate play
  • Developmental stages
  • Positive parenting techniques
