ECMHMatters Podcast

The Early Childhood Mental Health Partnership has developed an innovative approach to a community of practice. We have produced a limited series podcast to share our experience of partnering across Massachusetts to increase capacity to serve the families of our youngest citizens. By developing a mixed media campaign of living resources, we will tell the story of the Boston Public Health Commission and Department of Public Health integrating ECMH Clinicians and Family Partners into primary care settings. The podcast welcomes out partners to share how we did it, what went well and what we learned it will take to continue our great work.

We have to recorded over 30 interviews that cover the birth of the partnership through 10 years of amazing work and finally our grant project coming to a close in September of 2019. Some of our guests include Project LAUNCH and System of Care Clinicians and Family Partners, Evaluation team members and leadership at partner sites. Podcasts and posts will include links that will take our listeners to tools, resources and providers that are doing Early Childhood Mental Health work across our state. We are hopeful that this virtual community of practice will live on both state, city and community partners websites and social media, as well as be streamed across the many platforms available. Below are some of the topics covered in ECMH Matters: The Podcast.
