The Community Infant Program (CIP) provides comprehensive therapeutic home-based and center-based services with a focus on the social emotional and mental health of infants pre-natal to six and their parents and/or caregivers in Santa Fe County. Licensed Masters-level therapists provide assessment, intervention, education, and treatment through home visits or in groups held on site.

Through involvement with CIP, most parents and/or caregivers show much greater understanding of their child’s behavior, development, and non-verbal cues. They are better able to respond appropriately to their child’s emotional needs, and feel a greater sense of competence and satisfaction in their role as parents.

Families who are ­referred for services are often struggling with parental mental health issues, postpartum depression, domestic violence, abuse and ­neglect, involvement with CYFD, trauma, substance abuse, or some ­combination of these factors. All of these impact the social-emotional ­well-being of the children in the family. In fiscal year 2015, 1152 individuals received direct, indirect, and/or outreach services.

Services include:

  • Infant mental health home- and center-based individual services
  • Mother-infant groups
  • Infant, parent, and/or family therapy
  • Circle of Security parenting
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy with trained therapists
  • Concrete assistance

In FY 2015:

  • 214 children received both group and individual services to help them overcome social/emotional/developmental challenges.
  • 475 extended family members received support to help them better understand how to meet the emotional and developmental needs of their children. Services included group and individual sessions (with and without the children), and programs to help families coping with high stress and high conflict situations
  • 463 (est.) individuals received outreach services through presentations and requests for information
