About Infant Mental Health
Infant mental health refers to how well a child develops socially and emotionally from birth to age three. Understanding infant mental health is the key to preventing and treating the mental health problems of very young children and their families.
While at Tweddle parents learn about what a baby needs from their relationships and the importance of tuning into their child. Activities and enrichment programs at Tweddle include music, reading, play and understanding cues.
These day to day actions let a baby or toddler know that they are loved and safe. When relationships are reliably responsive and supportive, they can actually buffer young children from the adverse effects of stressors. Tweddle, clinicians work on addressing the stressors on the family therefore reducing the stressors affecting the babies and toddlers.
Infant Mental Health defines a young child’s capacity to experience, regulate and express emotions, form close and secure relationships and to explore and learn.
