Infant Mental Health Awareness Week

This week is infant mental health awareness week with the focus on ‘Speak up for babies’. Infant mental health is rarely talked about and poorly understood.

Babies can’t speak for themselves so it is essential that politicians are reminded in this general election few weeks that babies and very young children also experience the negative effects on their mental well being of parental mental health problems, adverse experiences, family stress and the cost of living crisis.

Poor mental health as babies negatively affects their longer term development and well being.

EPIC have the expertise to assess children of any age and are always here to help.
