The Tuition Support Program is designed for mental health professionals working with children ages birth to 5 who want to stay current with the rapidly-expanding research in the field. It is also open to early childhood mental health graduate students and master’s-level mental health practitioners eager to enter the early childhood field.
Professionals or graduate students can apply for funding to support their involvement in field-relevant courses of study, trainings, workshops and conferences. In return, the recipients are asked to put what they have learned back to work with the young children of Arizona.
- To increase the number of mental health professionals in Arizona who have expertise in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of mental health disturbances and disorders that affect young children.
- To increase the number of mental health professionals in Arizona who have the knowledge to help early childhood professionals support the mental health and social-emotional development of young children.
