We established the first Infant Mental Health Awareness Week in June 2016

Infant Mental Health Awareness Week

The week provides an opportunity for everyone working, studying or simply interested in the emotional wellbeing of babies, to share work they are doing and activities they are engaged in to help raise awareness of this important part of early childhood development.

The week has been running annually since 2016 with input from a range of partners in the field of infant mental health.  It typically falls in the first half of June.

Infant Mental Health Awareness Week will be running between June 7-12th in 2020.

In early 2020, we will share the theme for the week and start to engage with partners to develop the communications and activity plans for the week.

Anyone can join in locally, using the week and the theme to highlight babies’ emotional wellbeing.  We will be encouraging communications via social media using the hashtag #IMHAW20.

If there is specific activity you are planning please do get in touch so we can promote it and add it to the calendar of events for the week.
