Advocating for Infant/Early Childhood Mental Health: RIght from the Start
Each CCS session RIAIMH partners with a different service sector in RI to learn from local leaders about how their unique programs might be aligned with (or informed by) the Strong Roots model. We will discuss the needs of the workforce to implement programs that hold relationships in mind for the wellbeing of RI’s babies. We will continue to discuss the 5 core SR components of the model in relation to the different sectors. We will also center discussions around issues of race, power, inequity, and bias as we explore implications for the mental health and wellbeing of infants, young children, and their families.
This month we will also touch upon the Advocacy work in RI through Policy change.
All members are invited to attend for FREE
