The Infant, Preschool, Family, Mental Health Initiative (IPFMHI)
CIBHS is pleased to provide this set of documents produced through the Infant, Preschool, Family, Mental Health Initiative (IPFMHI). These products, a joint effort of First 5 California, the California Department of Mental Health, and the California Institute of Mental Health, are designed to support First 5 Special Needs Demonstrations Sites, First 5 School Readiness Sites, and other early mental health program efforts across the state.
These three guides offer information and outline structures that can support the development of programs that identify social-emotional developmental delays and disorders, and promote access to prevention, early intervention, and treatment services for children birth to 5 years old.
Please contact First 5 California, the California Department of Mental Health, or the California Institute for Behavioral Health Solutions if you would like more information about early childhood mental health services.
