Australian Association for Infant Mental Health Inc

Welcome to AAIMH

AAIMH is a national organisation of professionals from many fields who work with infants, young children and their families. Our mission is to work towards  improving professional and community recognition that infancy and early childhood is a critical time for the development of emotional, physical and mental health.

AAIMH is affiliated with the World Association for Infant Mental Health (WAIMH) and contributes to international developments and initiatives.

AAIMH organises regular national conferences as well as workshops and seminars to enhance knowledge about social and emotional development in 0 to 3-year-olds and develop skills to assist families and communities to build nurturing and strong relationships with their infants and young children.

AAIMH works with other agencies on advocacy and educational initiatives, responds to Government inquiries and reports relating to infancy and provides information to members through its website and newsletter.

AAIMH also develops position statements and guidelines to support Infant Mental Health professionals and parents.
