Welcome to the Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation Program Needs Assessment Survey! By taking this survey, you are helping your program to identify strengths and challenges in the structure and effectiveness of the program’s mental health consultation services. After you have completed the survey, you will receive an individualized list of training materials and resources that can help your program address any challenges identified. We suggest that your program use these results for ongoing discussions and quality improvements.

Please know that all of your survey responses are ANONYMOUS and CONFIDENTIAL. No one will know who provided these answers, unless you choose to tell them. Your honest opinions will help to make the results of this survey most useful for identifying areas where program training and technical assistance may be needed.

The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. Some things to keep in mind while completing the survey:

  • Some questions ask for your opinion about your program’s mental health consultant (“MHC”). If there is more than one MHC that works with your program, please answer based on the MHC that you work with the most.
  • You must answer every question, or the survey software will not let you go on to the next question.
  • Try to answer questions based on what is usually or typically the case for you, even if you can think of some circumstances where things are different.

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey, and to help your program begin the process of strengthening its mental health consultation services for children, families and staff. Your input is key to the success of this effort!

When you have finished, please print out these results.
