Infant and Child Mental Health
The Infant & Child Mental Health (ICMH) program is designed to enhance the ability of front-line workers to effectively and empathically understand and support children presenting with mental health concerns. Five offered courses focus on developmental process, as well as risk factors that can impede normative development. Psychiatric presentations and their impact on children and their families are explored while prevention and intervention strategies are considered through a cultural and developmental lens. Courses are structured to enrich learning for students currently involved in CMTN’s Health & Human Health Service programs (i.e. ECCE, Social Services Work, Nursing and Education) and engage Professionals working in community-based and institutional settings who would like to seek Professional Development.
