Open-Door sessions are an opportunity for any early learning and care provider in California to participate in virtual “on-demand” consultation with other early learning caregivers. These sessions are facilitated by an experienced IECMHC Network Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Specialist or Consultant. Participants are encouraged to attend with questions, concerns, and challenges related to infant, toddler, and young children’s social, emotional, and health. The Open-Door is intended to be a confidential space to reflect, seek supportive input, share ideas and resources, discuss development, and network within a community. There will be one 60-minute session every month. Dates for upcoming Open-Door sessions and links to registration can be found on the IECMHC Network upcoming events page.
