    Infant/Early Childhood Mental Health
    Community Conversation Series 

    Session 5

    October 21, 2019

    Speakers: Pamela High, MD & Susan Dickstein, PhD, IMH-E

    Topic: "No Small Matter": Partnering in Early Care and Education

    We begin this event by viewing the documentary film “No Small Matter”. This film lays out the evidence for the importance of the first five years, reveals the critical importance of infants’ and young children’s early relationships and early care, as well as underscoring the urgent need for community attention to the need for high quality care for all infants and young children. We follow the film with two discussants -- one a pediatrician, the other a clinical psychologist. The discussants will comment on the film, speak about their own experience of partnering with ECE providers and programs in support of infant mental health, and reflect on the role of this kind of partnering between ECE and health care in supporting quality care for children and families.

    Annual Celebrating Babies Event

    For the past 7+ years, the Alliance for the Advancement of Infant Mental Health has chosen a week in October and dedicated it to celebrating babies and the professionals who work with and/or on behalf of babies. During this year’s Celebrating Babies week - 10/21-25, the Rhode Island Association for Infant Mental Health (RIAIMH) honors all of our members for the incredible work you do supporting and advocating on behalf of pregnant women, infants, young children, and their families.
    The work you do is so important - because babies can’t wait!  #celebratebabies2019
