Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation

The Consultation Project, funded by the Illinois Children’s Mental Health Partnership and Voices for Illinois Children, implements a mental health consultation model that helps local agencies address the mental health needs of young children ages 0 to 7. CPRD is assessing how the model is adopted by local mental health providers. Our work focuses on identifying qualities and characteristics that support or interfere with model adoption. Findings from this project may ultimately be used to improve the quality of early childhood mental health services in Illinois.
