Preventative Home Visitors

Being infant and early childhood mental health informed means using  knowledge, skills and reflective experiences to guide our work infants, young children, and families.

As a preventative home visitor, this means understanding:

  • Infant/very young child development & behavior to guide a family’s expectations and to help them support what is coming next for their baby

  • Attachment, separation, trauma, grief & loss to encourage what is going well and respond with empathy to what might not be going well

  • A relationship-based approach to offer meaningful support

  • The culture and community in which the family is raising the infant/toddler
