Just Released: CBHI Early Childhood Mental Health Toolkit

From the CBHI
Childhood Behavioral Health Initiative

November 25, 2014

We are excited to share the release of the Early Childhood Mental Health Toolkit from our partners at the Department of Public Health and the Boston Public Health Commission.

Available at ecmhmatters.org, the Early Childhood Mental Health Toolkit: Integrating Mental Health Services into the Pediatric Medical Home is a comprehensive collection of tools and tips for incorporating early childhood mental health personnel and practices into the pediatric primary care setting.

Topics addressed include:

The model is based on a partnership between a family partner and early childhood mental health clinician. Knowing many practices may not have the capacity to create or fill these positions in the current healthcare environment, BPHC has structured the toolkit to be used by primary care practices with or without dedicated early childhood mental health staff.

We encourage you to share this resource, and other resources found on ecmhmatters.org with your provider network. In the Families & Friends section are social marketing resources, including printable posters and flashcards to help engage parents and providers in conversation about social and emotional health.

A small change at the pediatrician’s office can make a large difference for a child. Integrating early childhood mental health concepts, services, and systems into the pediatric medical home helps to transform primary care, making the medical home a resource for the physical and mental health of a young child and a source of support for the entire family.

Thank you for everything you do.

Emily Sherwood, Director
Children’s Behavioral Health Interagency Initiatives
