Welcome to Infant Mental Health Awareness Week 2019

The Association for Infant Mental Health – AIMH UK have specified this year’s topic as ‘Difficult Beginnings’, in acknowledgement that many pregnant women and their partners face difficulties at some point during pregnancy and after the birth.

IMH Awareness Week therefore provides a perfect opportunity to highlight some of the difficulties thatcan be experienced, the way in which such difficulties could affect the infant, and to draw attention to the different sorts of support that are now available to help parents and babies who may be experiencing difficult beginnings.

You can join the discussion and highlight initiatives, support and information which organisations in Northern Ireland are providing to infants and their parents throughout the week by using the hashtag#IMHAW19 in your social media postings.
