Infant and Early Childhood
Mental Health Consultation

Michigan’s Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation (IECMHC) services improve outcomes for young children (birth through five years old), families, earlycare and education providers, and communities.


Michigan’s IECMHC (also known as Social Emotional Consultation) is a prevention-based intervention teaming mental health professionals with early care and education providers and families to improve adults’ ability to positively develop children’s social, emotional, and behavioral health from birth through age five.

Michigan’s Department of Health and Human Services directly supports this work, in partnership with local Community Mental Health agencies, and the Michigan Department of Education and local Resource Centers.
