Awareness and acknowledgement surrounding infant mental health remains obscure to most. The term infant mental health is essentially foreign to the general population. “There are many who would argue that the most disadvantaged in any society are the stigmatized mentally ill” (Herrman, Saxena, & Moodie, 2005, p. 234). Although there has been a concerted effort by many organizations and individual youth and adults to educate the public at large about mental health, including de-stigmatiz- ing this seemingly abstract concept, only recently has it really come into public view.
