Early Childhood Mental Health Program (ECMHP) started as the Comprehensive Therapeutic Nursery School in 1974 as a grassroots effort led by a group of local parents, teachers, social workers, and community activists who were concerned about the number of children reaching kindergarten and struggling to benefit from education due to their adverse childhood experiences. The need was so great, and their success was so notable that, in a few years, the program had expanded and won government support to provide child-parent therapy and preschool mental health consultation services. ECMHP continues to pioneer programs that enhance the current behavioral health landscape by having the focus of treatment be the relationship between the caregiver and their children. Our guiding principle is that a caregiver who is listened to, respected, and supported can do the same for the children in their care. Currently, ECMHP serves approximately 500 families annually and supports them to heal and build resilience in the face of adversity. Additionally, ECMHP provides professional development opportunities and training for professionals working in mental health and early education to promote trauma informed practices.
