Foundations in Infant and Early Mental Health Practice: Certificate Lecture Series
This training is an effective and economical way to integrate infant and early mental health learning and practice into continuing professional education and staff engagement events. This 13-part training program aims to raise awareness and understanding of the unique needs of infants and toddlers in order to promote healthy social-emotional development in the early years and reduce the likelihood of poor mental and physical health outcomes in the later years. 

Infant Mental Health from the Bench
As part of the Family Law Initiative, IEMHP has created a video series focusing on understanding infant and early mental health within the judicial system. The video series was developed to inform judges, lawyers and other legal professionals working on cases involving child protection and/or divorce.

IEMHP Workshops
We offer valuable learning and networking opportunities for professionals who work with young children and their families. Frontline service providers, supervisors, educators, researchers, administrators, advocates, policy makers and anyone concerned with the care of very young children and their families can benefit from IEMHP learning experiences.
