Hub event 10 May 2021: Building a local early years/infant mental health network

A hub within AiMH UK

Thank you to all who attended online our first networking event on Monday 10 May 2021, following the planning meeting with service managers/leads in March 2021.

It was good to meet you all, and to begin the process of building a local early years/infant mental health network, connecting with local IMH practitioners.

We plan to host networking events twice per year: October and May.

Our event:

  • Want to know what’s going in your area?
  • Want to link up with other practitioners in the early years?
  • Join us for a local networking event, open to all practitioners working in Bristol, Gloucestershire, and Somerset.

We had stimulating discussions based on the following themes:

  • How to keep the infant in mind in family/maternal services?
  • How can input be delivered earlier to prevent escalation/deterioration?
  • Working antenatally to support families
  • Families and Covid-19

Please go to the forum topic for more information about the discussions and issues raised. Please do add your comments there.

We also discussed possible themes for future Hub events – see the Hub forum.
