Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health

Infants and young children have mental health. It is the child's ability to develop close and secure adult and peer relationships. It also means they are able to experience, manage and express a full range of emotions. Children learn about their world with the help of their family, community, and culture.

Your baby's brain starts to grow when you are pregnant. The first 2000 days after your baby is born are the most critical time for brain development. Remember it is never too late!
