Early Childhood Mental Health Endorsement Information Session
Tue, Apr 13
3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
NYS-AIMH is excited to announce that we will be opening the Endorsement for Culturally Sensitive, Relationship-Focused Practice Promoting Early Childhood Mental Health® (ECMH-E®)
The ECMH-E® was created to provide a path to Endorsement® for professionals who are promoting and implementing infant and early childhood mental health principles in their work with or on behalf of children ages 3 up to 6 years old and their families. This adds to the Infant Mental Health Endorsement® that has been offered since 2017. 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 professionals. Intended to build on pre-service education, it is a career pathway that requires additional experiences (work, in-service training, and for some, reflective supervision/consultation) that support the implementation of techniques that promote social emotional health and well-being of very young children. Those who earn an ECMH-E® credential will have demonstrated completion of this kind of training and/or education, and evidence that they can successfully apply this knowledge in their practice setting.
Please join us on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 from 3:00PM till 4:30 PM
We will gather via Zoom and hear from The Alliance for the Advancement of infant Mental Health (Alliance).
As part of The Alliance, NYS-AIMH is one of 31 states and several countries who offer this Endorsement®.
