Infant Mental Health Awareness Week

Tuesday 13th June 2017

This week we’re joining colleagues across the country to celebrate Infant Mental Health Awareness Week. The theme is Begin Before Birth and it’s about the importance of giving every child the best possible start in life, beginning from conception.

To mark the week, we’re promoting the Baby Buddy app which can be downloaded for free. It has been designed to give babies the best start in life and to support health and wellbeing, by guiding parents through pregnancy and the first six months of baby’s life.

Our Infant Mental Health Service in Leeds contributed to elements of the app and it reinforces how we encourage all parents-to-be to touch and talk or sing to their bump to get to know each other and support the development of baby's brain. Local Mums have told us that they love the app and trust the content.
