Infant mental health is the thinking that all infants and toddlers are more likely to succeed later in life if they have a healthy, good relationship with the people to whom they are closest. An Infant Mental Health Specialist at Shiawassee Health & Wellness (SHW) helps support bonding and attachments between the parent and their young child, as well as promoting child development. This program will help a child grow and become secure and confident. A SHW Infant Mental health Specialist also works with the parents on some of their own mental health needs that could get in the way of successful parenting. This is a home-based program, which means that the SHW Mental Health Specialist provides the service in the infants’ home.
