Our Vision: Wisconsin’s
children are safe, nurtured and
supported to achieve their optimal mental health and well-being. Systems are family-friendly, easy to
navigate, equitable, and inclusive of all people.
Why We Meet: The following indicators are some of the topics we are tracking which drive the Infant Toddler Team and illustrate the current state of children’s mental health and well-being:
- School Suspensions and Expulsions
- Availability of Psychologists
- Availability of Psychiatrists
How We Improve Systems: The Infant Toddler Team has developed an Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation Model (IECMHC) for Wisconsin. This is an evidenced based professional mental health service that builds adults’ capacity to strengthen and support children’s social and emotional health and development.
Our Current Partners: Members of the Infant Toddler Team include the University of Wisconsin, state departments (Department of Children and Families, Department of Health Services), childcare specialists, early childhood experts and organizations, county health and human services, non-profit organizations focused on child well-being, mental health, and welfare, public early childhood education, and healthcare systems.
