Consultation and Technical Assistance

The MDH Family Home Visiting (FHV) Section offers consultation for programming and support in best practices to local public and tribal health home visiting programs. This work supports the integration of family home visiting into the state's comprehensive early childhood system. MDH FHV consultants understand the importance of relationship building with a variety of partners to increase capacity for communities to promote the healthy development of children, secure attachments between caregivers and children, increase self-sufficiency and safety of families with infants and improved pregnancy outcomes. MDH FHV consultants provide support through consultation, technical support and training to local public health and tribal nations throughout Minnesota.
