Consilience Group is excited to share that Sarahbeth Winn, Program Manager, has been selected as a member of the Association of Infant Mental Health in Tennessee (AIMHiTN) Equity Impact Team. The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has drawn attention to the increasing need for accessible mental health services, particularly for vulnerable families with young children. Recognizing this need, AIMHiTN is helping families get connected to the right kinds of mental health supports when they need them.

As a critical step in this process, AIMHiTN has established an Equity Impact Team to identify opportunities to promote equitable access to early childhood services. Team members include AIMHiTN’s Board, Advisory Council, staff, as well as select stakeholders from across the state who provide diverse perspectives. The Equity Impact Team will provide input and recommendations regarding how AIMHiTN can infuse an equity lens throughout all the association’s efforts. The Equity Team began meeting as a group in October 2020 and will continue to convene monthly.

AIMHiTN is a multidisciplinary non-profit organization for all professionals who support the development of children from birth to age 5. Across the state, they work to ensure the optimal social, emotional, and cognitive well-being of children, developed by secure and stable relationships with nurturing caregivers.
