When I tell people I do mental health consultation for children 0-3, often the first question I get regarding my position is, "Do kids that young have mental health problems?" It is not that I don't appreciate the concern that accompanies the question, but it is the wrong question. Yes, I come across some children who need extra attention where their mental health is concerned. But that misses the point. It is not so much that these very young children have mental health 'problems,' but that they have mental health to begin with that people are just beginning to recognize and prioritize.
