Welcome to CT-AIMH

Infant Mental Health concerns the relationships that infants and young children have with their caregivers, usually their parents.  Infant mental health also refers to the capacity to regulate emotions and to explore one’s environment.  Promoting these relationships in a culturally sensitive context is the work of professionals from many disciplines including health, human services and education.  When these earliest relationships are positive, responsive and predictable the stage is set for successful learning in later development.
