Services Provided: Early Childhood Mental Health Services ECMHS at UNM CDD offer relationship-based and family-centered assessment and treatment services for infants and toddlers birth to three and their caregivers/families. We provide assessment and treatment services when families are concerned about a very young child's social and emotional well-being, self-regulation, behavior, and/or when difficulties in childrearing come up for parents/caregivers. Children who have experienced abuse, neglect, disruptive changes in their care-giving environment and/or other potentially traumatic events are an area of specialization for ECMHS clinicians. The Infant Team program at UNM CDD works directly with children birth to three in CYFD-CPS custody, providing a comprehensive assessment of these children and their relationships with primary caregivers. This program provides some case management services, court reporting, and treatment for children and families. Referrals must be made through CYFD or with CYFD caseworker's approval. ECMH Services are provided by licensed social workers, psychologists, counselors, and advanced psychology trainees with specialized training in infant and early childhood mental health approaches. We offer an extended assessment process to be sure we understand family concerns fully before developing a plan for intervention designed to bring relief to both children and their caregivers/families. Parents, other caregivers and family members are our partners in this process and are always actively involved in all aspects of the assessment and treatment process. Services are primarily home-based, or can take place in our offices.
