What is infant mental health? And aren’t infants going to simply forget everything that happens to them from zero to three (or maybe four, five and six) years?
Infant mental health (IMH) refers to the social, emotional and cognitive well-being of infants and children. The field of IMH has exploded in recent years. We now know so much more about the developing brains, both prenatally and post-natally, of infants and children. In the first three years, babies make 700 new connections every second.
