Infant and child mental health consultation guide (0-5 years)

Emerging Minds, Australia, October 2020

A child mental health assessment usually takes longer than other health presentations and often requires multiple follow up appointments with the child and family. This consultation guide provides you with a clear blueprint to follow during a mental health assessment.

The guide encourages you to draw on your own clinical reasoning skills to move in and out of each phase, depending on the child and family’s needs during each appointment. It outlines the key
approaches and skills required when assessing and supporting a child with mental health difficulties. Our course, A GP framework for infant and early childhood mental health assessment, covers the consultation guide in more detail.
