Infant and Toddler Mental Health Team

Infant and Toddler Mental Health Court Team, Birth to Three

The Court Teams strategy is to improve outcomes for infants, toddlers and their families involved in the child welfare system in order to reduce or prevent future court involvement. Through its implementation, informed local communities can strengthen the support and care for young children and their families in the Juvenile Court system. This is accomplished through training, shared planning and regular consultation of those agencies working with a child and family. The Court Team may recommend and refer the child and family for services, but does not directly provide these services.

The Court Team is comprised of juvenile dependency judges, attorneys, Department of Child Safety managers, Foster Care Review Board, Court Appointed Special Advocates, First Things First, foster agency representatives, early intervention specialists and other community stakeholders invested in helping Mohave’s infants and toddlers in the child welfare system.

The role of the Court Team is to raise awareness amongst community members and professionals who work with maltreated infants and toddlers of the negative impact abuse and neglect have on our youngest children and to change local systems to improve outcomes and help prevent future court involvement.

Team Mission:
Providing a collaborative system to prepare and promote a healthy environment for children birth to three and their families.
