Infant Mental Health Virtual Workshop Series

Mental Health Begins at Birth

A three-part virtual workshop on supporting Durham’s youngest children

Awareness about the importance of the first five years of life to the long-term health and well-being of children, adolescents, and eventually adults has grown exponentially in recent years. We now know more than ever about how the brain develops and how stress and trauma during these early years impact overall development, and how caregiver interventions make a difference.

Join this READY-sponsored workshop series to build your own understanding of infant mental health, the impact of traumatic experiences on healthy development, and your ability to make a difference for young children.
