Our core mission is to improve the lives of all infants and their families through leading excellence in practice and reducing health inequalities. To achieve this the Institute has a strong focus on perinatal and infant mental health (PIMH).
We believe that there really is “No Health without Mental Health” and that a healthy parent and a healthy parent-infant relationship is the foundation for good mental health across the life-course and, in turn, a healthy society.
