Resources

The CoE for IECMHC team is in the process of updating, creating and organizing an extensive library of IECMHC resources. Please check back for an updated list in the coming months. Until then, here are a few to get you started. Feel free to request technical assistance if you would like to engage in technical assistance with our subject matter experts.

Resources for Mental Health Consultants:

The resources in this section are for mental health consultants to enhance their own capacities and/or to use in their consultation work.

Resources for IECMHC Program Managers and Policy Makers:

The resources in this section are for program managers and policy makers and are grouped around our five organizing principles: equity, workforce, policy and financing, research and evaluation, and programs and models.

Equity: Learn about disparities in the experiences of young children of color and children from other marginalized communities in early childhood settings; discover strategies for IECMHC to impact early childhood professionals’ beliefs, attitudes, and practices to support more effective caregiving for all children, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, class, or a myriad of demographic characteristics; and better understand policies and procedures, including data collection and analysis procedures, to bridge disparities.

Workforce: Learn about the competencies, training, supervision, mentoring, and quality assurance systems needed to build a strong IECMHC workforce.

Policy and Financing: Learn about policies and financing to fund and sustain IECMHC services. Access information about key policies, funding streams and strategies for making funding requests.

Research and Evaluation

Research and Evaluation: Learn about theories of change, logic models, evaluation plans, and other research tools that help IECMHC teams measure program fidelity and impact.

Programs and Models: Learn about components of successful IECMHC programs, national programs and models and tools to strengthen your IECMHC services.
