Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation

Tulane Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation Support and Services (TIKES).

TIKES serves to increase the quality of child care and early learning initiatives for all children across the state and provide child care staff and parents with tools to understand and command higher quality child care for children.

Centers participating in TIKES are eligible to receive mental health consultations. Children’s Bureau of New Orleans, through a grant from Tulane University, employs full-time licensed mental health professionals, trained in infant and early childhood issues (0-5 years old), who work closely with teachers on-site and serve as a resource for child care providers and parents as they foster and enhance children’s early development through education, training, identification and intervention.
