Infant and early childhood mental health (IECMH) is an emerging practice area in OT. Using a family capacity model to address the core capacities of IECMH, OTs can assist in improving mental health and wellness later in life. The purpose of this presentation is to inform OT practitioners of the importance of addressing the three core capacities of IECMH, applying them in a family capacity building model, and creating and sharing strategies through small- and large-group discussion.
