Our Mission

The mission of the Rhode Island Association for Infant Mental Health (RIAIMH) is to foster the mental health and well being of pregnant women, young children (birth to five) and their families, by supporting the discipline of infant mental health in Rhode Island. We foster a community of mutual support, resource sharing and collaboration for our interdisciplinary membership and those who work with or care for pregnant women, young children and their families.

To achieve this mission, RIAIMH promotes and conducts activities that support:

  1. An educational agenda focused on translating infant mental health principles into practice.
  2. A public policy agenda focused on advocating for resources and informed practices within governmental and regulatory institutions to further the social and emotional well being of young children and their families in RI.
