Infant Mental Health Awareness Week 12 -16 June 2017!

The UKs inaugural infant mental health awareness week which was launched on the 6th June 2016 continues to open up the conversation about the importance of the first 1001 days: conception to age 2 period. Infant mental health has a long standing history in the UK highlighting the importance of attachment and responsive, sensitive caregiving experiences for infant-family relationships beginning in the antenatal period.

Infant mental health challenges us as a society to reflect upon how well we are doing for children and in particular asks what experiences does a baby have being born in the UK.The first 1001 days: conception to age 2 period invites us as a society to improve the life chances of every baby and opens up a window of opportunity for early investment and improved future outcomes for children in the UK.

2017 sees a second national week with the theme of pregnancy - Begin Before Birth.
