The Harris Professional Development Network is a network of 19 Irving Harris Foundation grantees led by infant and early childhood mental health (IECHM) and child trauma experts coming from 12 states, DC, and Israel. These experts contribute to their respective communities by training the early childhood mental health workforce and contributing to the integration of mental health and child trauma principles into services and systems that serve pregnant women and very young children. The network includes various types of institutions that offer pre- and post-doc fellowships in infant and early childhood mental health, specialized MA and BA programs, certificates and professional development opportunities along the care continuum from promotion to treatment. All have in common their passion for supporting young children’s social and emotional well-being. For a list of all PDN grantees, you can click here.
