Infancy Onward helps early
Infancy Onward – formerly known as the Indiana Association for Infant & Toddler Mental Health – is a subsidiary organization of our state mental health association, Mental Health America of Indiana (MHAI). Founded in 2000, we are an organization of individuals committed to strengthening relationships between infants, toddlers, parents, and other caregivers.
Infant Mental Health (IMH) professionals believe that the parent-infant relationship is central to the healthy development of young children. We are committed to the view that these relationships are influenced by:
- the parent or caregiver’s actions and experiences
- the infant’s characteristics and responses, and
- the surrounding environment
Infancy Onward’s mission
Advance the conditions which provide an early start toward optimal mental health.
