World Association for Infant Mental Health invites professionals to join in this year’s Celebrate Babies initiative during the week of October 19-23, 2020!
Take time out of your usual schedule to celebrate the incredible work you do supporting and advocating for infants, toddlers and their families. Gather with your colleagues, families and community to host a 2020 Celebrate Babies week event big or small!
The of Celebrate Babies initiative for WAIMH affiliates and IMH associations from across the globe is to keep babies, young children, their families and those that support them in mind.
