Last year saw the launch of the UK’s first Infant Mental Health Awareness Week #IMHAW16 which saw a reach of ten million. You are invited to join us in partnership and collaboration for #IMHAW17 with the theme of pregnancy – ‘Begin Before Birth’ which will be held from the 12-16 June 2017.
We want to open up the awareness week to organisations who share our commitment to changing the conversation on mental health through early intervention and prevention by beginning in the pre-birth and early years foundations of life to ensure that every baby is given the best possible start in life.
If you’re interested in being involved, we’d love you to join us as a Supporter of #IMHAW17.
As a Supporter, there are three simple actions you can commit to in preparation over the coming months:
- Sharing awareness of infant mental health, we will be updating our website shortly with NEW resources based on this year’s theme
- Committing to one event during the course of the awareness week, and letting us know about the event
- Inspiring conversations about infant mental health in your community and sharing stories through social media using the #IMHAW17 hashtag by following the 1001 Critical Days Twitter Account @first1001days
