Training & Technical Assistance

The first five years in a child’s life are critical to their social-emotional development, a foundation for future success in learning, behavior and health. An increasing number of mental health providers are expanding their efforts to reach and support the youngest New Yorkers and their families.

TTAC provides training and technical assistance on infant and early childhood mental health across child serving systems in New York City focused on: 

  1. Increasing early childhood mental health provider clinical competence and capability to provide mental health consultation to non-mental health professionals in early care and education and other systems serving young children
  2. Developing program models to ensure the fiscal viability of mental health programs serving children birth to five
  3. Increasing the understanding of social emotional development of young children by non-mental health professionals in early care and education and other systems serving young children
