What is Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health?

It’s the developing capacity from birth to 6 to experience, regulate, and express emotions; to form close relationships; and to explore the environment and learn, all in the context of family, community, and cultural expectations for young children


Diversity Informed Tenets
Our collaborative work is grounded in the DIT which serves as a compass for operationalizing our policies and practices.


Professional Development Opportunities

 Endorsement is a professional development journey! Come join your colleagues!
If you work with or on behalf of young children (0-6 years of age) and their families focused on supporting social emotional wellbeing, we invite you to apply for Endorsement® in either English or Spanish. 

MassAIMH/MSPCC is pleased to offer 3 -4  Reflective Consultation (RC) groups from Fall 2022 to continue to center on our statewide workforce initiative towards ongoing commitment to operationalize policies and practices embedded in diversity, equity and inclusion. The RC will also meet requirements for your MassAIMH Endorsement application or renewals, along with building capacity of reflective supervision in your work!


State Highlights:
DC: 0-5 Crosswalk Released!


It’s finally here! After a couple of years of hard work, collaborating with several stakeholders across the US and MA and in close consultation with MassHealth, the Massachusetts DC: 0-5™ Crosswalk is released!
If you have been clinically trained in the use of the DC: 0-5™ please go ahead and start using this crosswalk in your work. For those who are curious to know more about this work, you can find more information in the link below.


All children feel big emotions sometimes: anger, frustration, impatience, sadness. And that’s okay. Grown-ups know how hard it is when big feelings cause big meltdowns, but you can help kids identify and name their feelings and learn to act in a positive way. Sesame Street offers resources to support us as caregivers!
