Michigan Association of Infant Mental Health
The Metro-Detroit Association for Infant Mental Health (MD-AIMH) was organized in 1983 to extend the work of MI-AIMH. The MD-AIMH provides opportunities for regional fellowship and support though programs, trainings and activities for those working with or on behalf of infants and young children and their families and caregivers, as well as those who seek to learn and grow in understanding of the social-emotional needs of our very youngest children. We are committed to developing and supporting a diverse membership in order to assist our community to provide a continuum of services to families with infants and very young children. We believe that these services should be high quality, universal, accessible, free and culturally relevant. To that end, we are dedicated to providing our membership with support and resources to assist them in offering quality services and leadership in the community. We encourage members to apply for scholarships through our chapter to the various Infant Mental Health training opportunities offered during the year. Our programming is designed to support a diverse and multidisciplinary field, including professionals, students, volunteers – in fact, all who support the mission of MI-AIMH.
MD-AIMH seeks to promote and support nurturing relationships for all infants in the Metropolitan Detroit area. This area generally includes Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties, though we welcome all who wish to join, participate, and receive chapter membership benefits, including discounts at local trainings and a subscription to our e-blast newsletter, The Infant Voice. Our chapter hosts three to four general event meetings each year including an annual Movie Night, offering a chance to view and discuss a carefully selected – infant mental health relevant – film.
