March 2008Vol. 9, No. 2Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation Toolkit
High-quality evaluations of early childhood mental health consultation are a key component of timely and effective mental health service provision. A new evaluation toolkit is now available to help States, communities, agencies, and grant-funded projects assess the impact of their early childhood mental health consultation projects. The toolkit defines the characteristics and core features of mental health consultation programs and examines the components of the evaluation process. It includes sections on program improvement and outcomes and early childhood mental health research. Appendices with evaluation tools are included.
Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation: An Evaluation Tool Kit was developed by the Georgetown University National Technical Assistance Center for Children's Mental Health, the Johns Hopkins University Women's and Children's Health Policy Center, and the Research and Training Center on Family Support and Children's Mental Health at Portland State University.
