Complimentary Webinar: Defining and Understanding Infant/ Early Childhood Mental Health

  • 26 Jul 2022
  • 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • Register at

Infant/Early Child Mental Health is the developing capacity of the child from birth to 5 years of age to form close and secure adult and peer relationships; experience, manage, and express a full range of emotions; and explore the environment and learn—all in the context of family, community, and culture. Many equate I/ECMH with overall social-emotional development and/or self-regulation, which is not entirely accurate. I/ECMH addresses the needs and strengths of the child, the needs and strengths of the primary caregiver, and the quality of the caregiving relationship. This webinar will define I/ECMH, overview guiding principles and approaches, highlight the importance of early childhood trauma, and discuss practices and strategies for attending to I/ECMH. 

  • What is I/ECMH and the prevalence of early childhood trauma 
  • The importance of I/ECMH and increasing awareness 
  • How equity overlaps with I/ECMH
