Infant & Early Childhood Mental Health

Infant & Early Childhood Mental Health

Our vision is to build nurturing and supportive relationships to provide the basis for emotional, cognitive and social capacities necessary for healthy future development.

Staff are dedicated to supporting healthy emotional, cognitive and social development of children prenatal to eight years old. We are working toward a future in which infant, toddler and young child are supported within nurturing relationships, positive experiences and supportive environments. This strong foundation provides the basis for emotional, cognitive and social capacities necessary for healthy future development.

Our goal is to instill the principles of infant and young child mental health in all services for infants, toddlers, young children and their families, as well as for expectant parents. Proven, evidence-based and evidence-informed interventions, practices and programs exist that can improve a wide range of outcomes for vulnerable children. To implement them, we advocate education, coordination and collaboration across organizational and professional disciplines which will benefit society well beyond the early childhood investment.
