Prevention and Multidisciplinary Teams

Room 204

Download session description

Multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) are often focused on responding to response to reports of child maltreatment. Often prevention efforts, while valued, are not the focus or priority of MDTs. Char and members of northern St. Louis County’s Early Childhood Mental Health Initiative (ECMHI) will lead a discussion on innovative prevention work being done in Northern Minnesota.

This session will focus on how your team can incorporate prevention efforts into your community and build cross-sector collaboration. By ensuring that parents have the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to care for their children, we can help prevent child abuse and neglect and create strong and thriving children, youth, and families in our communities.

  • • Learn about the formation of Northern St. Louis County’s Early Childhood Mental Health Initiative (ECMHI).
