Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $388,807)

This proposal seeks funding for a multi-year process and outcome evaluation of four Infant Mental Health (IMH) programs in MI. IMH services are delivered in the home to families where the parents' depression or other mental disorder places their infant and/or toddler at risk, or to families with infants/toddlers already diagnosed as having attachment or regulatory disorders. The purpose of the evaluation is to determine the efficacy of IMH services in preventing child abuse and neglect and mitigating early risk factors for juvenile delinquency. CA/NCF
