PH-2360.1500Child Care Mental Health Consultation Programs Definition
Programs that provide problem-solving consultation and advice for parents and child care providers to support children who are experiencing behavioral or emotional challenges in their child care setting that put them at risk for losing access to their child care. The program aims to ensure the success of all children in child care and increase the number of families and child care providers who effectively nurture the social and emotional development of young children in licensed child care programs. Services include observation and assessment, home visits, child care site visits, behavior management strategies for the child care setting and the home, adaptations in the child care environment, team planning and community referrals, and staff training. The programs differ from community to community in a number of ways including the type of services provided (behavioral-oriented versus therapy-oriented), the credentials of professionals providing the service (licensed therapists, behaviorists, early childhood specialists/educators), and the degree to which they work individually with children and families. They are generally implemented within a collaborative relationship between local community mental health agencies and local/regional child care resource and referral association offices, though other organizations may also be involved.
RR-5150.2500General Mental Health Information/Education Definition
Programs that improve the public's understanding of mental health and mental illness and help people make choices which promote personal mental health, take advantage of opportunities for early detection, develop an awareness of available treatment options and support their ability to deal with mental health problems when they arise. General mental health information/education programs provide information about a wide variety of mental health related diagnoses rather than specializing in a particular area; and may develop and disseminate materials whose objective is to dispel misconceptions about the nature of mental illness, marshal support for people who have a psychiatric disability or behavioral issue and help to remove the stigma that is often associated with mental illness.
TJ-3000.8000Specialized Information and Referral Definition
Programs that maintain information about community resources that are appropriate for a specific target group or human services sector (for example, youth programs or addiction services) and which link individuals who are in need of specialized services with appropriate resources and/or which provide information about community agencies and organizations that offer specialized services.
TP-6650Professional Skills Development Support Definition

YF-5000Mental Illness/Emotional Disabilities Definition
An alteration in thinking, mood or behavior or some combination of those that either creates distress or interferes with people's relationships or their ability function.
YQ-8500Trauma Informed Organizational/Practitioner Perspective Definition
Individual practitioners, programs, and/or systems whose approach to engaging people with a history of trauma involves recognition of the presence of trauma symptoms and acknowledgement of the role that trauma has played in their lives. The approach can be implemented in any type of service setting or organization and has been used in the delivery of a broad range of services including mental health, substance use, housing, vocational or employment support, domestic violence and victim assistance, and peer support. However, it is distinct from trauma-specific interventions or treatments that are designed specifically to address the consequences of trauma and to facilitate healing.
