Tulane Early Childhood Collaborative - TECC

The Tulane Early Childhood Collaborative program provides consultation to pediatric primary care providers to promote mental health in children under 6.

Our goal: Promoting early childhood and family well-being by supporting pediatric primary care providers to identify risk factors early, promote family well-being, and address early mental health problems.  

Who we are: We are pediatric mental health providers: child psychiatrists, pediatrician-child psychiatrists, and child psychologists. We’ve worked in primary care clinics and specialty early childhood mental health clinics and are part of the Tulane Institute of Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health.

TECC supports primary care providers to promote mental health in children under 6 & their families through:

Mental Health Consultation

  • Curbside consultations at your office
  • Phone, e-mail, or secure video consultations
  • We can also see children for a consultation evaluation to help clarify the diagnosis or make treatment recommendations.

In-service trainings/ “Lunch and Learns” for PCPs about early childhood mental health

Web-based resources to hand out to families or to learn more about the foundations of early childhood mental health

Enroll in TECC by calling us at 985-250-1624, by completing this enrollment form. We’ll call you back to talk about how we can be most helpful. We’ll probably set up a time to meet with you in your clinic or can jump right in with clinical questions or consultations.

Have a consult now? We’ll still ask you to complete the enrollment form (above), but please do call or send us a consult question by fax: 504-988-4264 or e-mail
