PRiSM: Promoting Research-informed State Infant-Early Childhood Mental Health Policies and Scaled Initiatives

PRiSM helps advocates and policymakers identify many of the most promising strategies states are using to promote infant-toddler mental health. PRiSM has an online, searchable collection of research-informed IECMH policies and scaled initiatives along with summaries of research about key IECMH strategies (e.g., IECMH screening, consultation, dyadic treatment). PRiSM also conducts policy surveys; a recent 50-state policy survey examined the capacity of states’ Part C programs to identify and address infant-toddler mental health needs.
