SAMHSA recognizes the critical role of child care providers in facilitating a young child’s social, emotional, and cognitive development in collaboration with the child’s parent and significant caretakers. Increasingly, child care providers report difficulty working with children who are experiencing multiple challenges. Mental health consultants, trained to work with young children and their families, can serve as important resources to help the child care provider find effective ways to work with these children.
