The Tulane Early Childhood Collaborative (TECC) provides consultation to pediatric primary care providers to promote mental health in children birth to six years.
We are pediatric mental health providers: child psychiatrists, pediatrician-child psychiatrists, child psychologists, and clinical social workers within the Tulane Institute of Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health.
We provide grant-funded consultation to pediatric primary care clinicians in the New Orleans and Baton Rouge metropolitan areas, helping to build their capacity to identify risk factors early, promote family well-being, and understand and respond to mental health issues in children birth to six years.
Clinical consultation about patient mental health and behavioral concerns may be offered on-site or by phone, email or secure video:
We provide brief, topic-focused trainings for your primary care clinic, clinical and resource information for providers and families, and evidence-based virtual parenting education groups are available for parents and caregivers at no cost.
