What is Early Childhood Mental Health?

Children aged 0-5 are brimming with skills in resilience and courage, as they navigate a myriad of developmental and experiential milestones. Social, emotional and mental supports provided to this age group play an essential role in enhancing those skills, to assist these children as they encounter potential traumas, emotional detachments or biological and developmental delays. These supports can be accessed via specific mental health care that is shaped around the needs of the child and their caregivers and comprised of interactive processes to support the development of the entire family unit. Early childhood focused mental health services function as an umbrella over intentional prenatal care, diagnostic clarity regarding mental health conditions and developmental delays, and interdisciplinary and cross-collaborative treatment; and they can be offered across various settings of benefit to the child including schools, health clinics, family homes, telehealth platforms, etc.

OHA Recommended Evidence-Based Treatments (age 6 and under)

Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT): A therapeutic intervention for children ages 2-6 experiencing significant social, emotional, or behavioral challenges. Participation in this treatment can improve child behavior, positive communication, and parenting skills. The therapist will observe (outside of the room) interactions between parent(s) and child and provide guidance to the parent(s) through wireless communication.

Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP):
A mental health treatment for children ages 0-6 with a goal to strengthen the child and primary caregiver’s relationship as a way to protect the child’s mental health. The treatment involves creating a narrative of psychological trauma events to identify traumatic triggers to address dysregulated behaviors. The average treatment length is 50 weekly sessions.

Generation Parent Model Training Oregon (Generation PMTO):
A parent training intervention that can be used as a preventative/treatment program. It is tailored for specific child/youth clinical problems, substance abuse, child neglect and abuse. Goals include increasing positive parenting practices, social competency and peer relations in youth, academic performance and promoting reunification of families; and reducing intimidating family processes, internalizing and externalizing behaviors in youth, substance use and abuse in youth, delinquency, out-of-home placements, and deviant peer association. Recommended treatment duration is for 10-25 weekly 1-hour sessions.

Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT):
A short-term treatment that helps children and adolescents recover after trauma; improving trauma symptoms and responses. Average sessions last anywhere from 8-25 with the child/adolescent and primary caregiver. An effective treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms however a PTSD diagnosis is not necessary to participate.
