Infant Mental Health Week 2023 (12-18 June)

Today marks the beginning of Infant Mental Health Week. This year’s theme, Bonding Before Birth focuses on pregnancy, and how what happens during this time can impact a baby’s future mental health and well-being.

Practitioners from services and disciplines across the statutory, voluntary and community sector in the Southern Trust area have produced a series of short videos for parents/parents to be and those working to support families relating to the theme of Infant Mental Health Week. A sample of videos will be highlighted across Southern Trust Social Media platforms throughout this week.

All videos can be viewed through the following link
