About Us

The Rhode Island Association for Infant Mental Health (RIAIMH) is a non-profit professional organization that offers expertise in infant and early childhood mental health. RIAIMH was founded in 2002 and received 501c(3) status in November 2003.

Mission

Our mission 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:

  • An educational agenda focused on translating infant mental health principles into practice.
  • 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.

What we do

Through training, reflective supervision/consultation, research, and advocacy, we foster reflective, culturally competent, relationship-based practices that equip professionals to nurture strong relationships among young children and all of the adults who care for them. Learn more.

Who we are

Our volunteer Board represents all the regions of our State, as well as a wide range of professional roles and programs that serve infants, young children, and their families.

Our members —the diverse workforce that promotes healthy relationships for infants, young children and families—collaborate to integrate infant mental health principles into real-life settings.
