Infant/Early Childhood Mental Health

In this section you will find information and resources for parents and caregivers to help them understand the important issues involved in the mental health of children ages birth to 5. We also give information specific to infants, toddlers and preschoolers including: ways to develop caring relationships, reaching important milestones in your child’s social and emotional development, information about maternal depression, understanding how stress affects infants and young children, how to get the best help for your infant or young child, and infant/early childhood services and supports available locally and nationally. This section provides an extensive resource library filled with publications, facts and figures, links and frequently asked questions specific to infant/early childhood mental health issues.

Margaret Holmberg, President of the Connecticut Association for Infant Mental Health, wrote and edited much of this Infant/Early Childhood Mental Health section.
