We are pleased to share with you a new resource, IECMH Clinical Workforce Solution Pathways from Zero To Three. This was co-created by stakeholders from around the country, including MSPCC, to capture the myriad of pathways of influence and opportunity to increase the size, diversity, quality, and accessibility of the Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health (IECMH) Clinical Workforce. This document is intended to serve as a starting point for discussions about the complex issue of IECMH clinical workforce development
