The AiMH UK IMHCompetency Framework (IMHCF)

The IMHCF outlines the competencies that are fundamental to all students and practitioners working with infants and their carers and identifies the competencies practitioners need to be effective in perinatal/infant mental health.

The framework is a free resource for all students and practitioners who work with babies/infants and their families. It aims to help us hold an infant’s mental health frame of mind, thereby supporting us to consider both the perspective of the baby (including non-verbal infancy) and that of the parent.


AiMH UK Infant Mental Health Training Directory

AiMH UK promotes the teaching and learning of infant mental health by working in partnership with training and course providers to offer a directory of current UK IMH training.

Training and education is fundamental to continuing professional development and it is essential that all trainee and trained practitioners keep up-to-date with legislation, develop their skills and knowledge and reflect on their effectiveness in order to continue to improve.

The AiMH UK IMHDirectory highlights infant mental health training opportunities and learning experiences offered by Independent and Private Training Providers, whether they be organisations, companies, or individuals.

It has been designed to simplify the process for practitioners to find the most suitable infant mental health training that aligns with theie Professional Development Plan (PDP) learning requirements.
