MYCHILD Teams

At each health center and HealthCare for the Homeless, the MYCHILD team consists of an Early Childhood Mental Health Clinician and a Family Partner. The clinician is a licensed mental health provider trained in early childhood practice. The Family Partner is a parent of a child with mental health or developmental needs as well as an advocate experienced in parent education and care coordination. Together, and in partnership with the child’s primary care provider, the MYCHILD team provides comprehensive, individualized services to families of young children with social and emotional health needs.
