Each Early Childhood Mental Health Endorsement® (ECMH-E®) has specific work, education, in-service training and reflective supervision/consultation* requirements.
The ECMH-E® is a workforce development initiative with the potential to positively impact the depth and breadth of knowledge, understanding and skills of early childhood mental health professionals across multiple disciplines and service sectors. You may be familiar with the Infant Mental Health Endorsement®, which has provided professionals working with or on behalf of infants, toddlers and families a credential that recognizes their specialized knowledge and skills in the infant-family field. We know that there are also many professionals working with and on behalf of children ages 3 up to 6 years old and their families who are also applying important infant and early childhood mental health principles into their work and we want those professionals to be recognized as well! The ECMH-E®will provide a pathway to Endorsement® for professionals who incorporate key infant and early childhood mental health competencies into their work with and on behalf of children ages 3 up to 6 years old and their families.
