In 1994, the Ohio Interagency Early Intervention Council formed an Infant/Family Mental Health Subcommittee to integrate an infant mental health perspective into early intervention and to promote collaborative service, teaching, and research across disciplines serving families with young children. An Infant/Family Mental Health Provider Resource Directory was published containing 184 clinician profiles (profession, address/phone, expertise, and willingness to supervise/mentor front-line personnel). Using the directory, 15 health and mental health clinicians from a one-county region formed an Infant/Family Mental Health Collaborative Office Rounds group, which meets twice monthly, to discuss case material. Implications for supervision, research, and training are discussed.
