This Mental Health Month we were delighted to launch Emerging Minds Families – a brand new suite of resources for parents and families looking for information and support regarding infant and child mental health.
Developed in collaboration with family members with lived experience, practitioners and using the latest research, Emerging Minds Families is all about offering practical and trustworthy information for families to use directly or for practitioners to share and use with the parents and families they work with.
Emerging Minds has been dedicated to the mental health and emotional wellbeing of Australian infants, children and families for over 20 years. Whether you’re a practitioner, parent, family member or organisation, we’re here to help you connect with better mental health information and approaches for infants, children and families.
