Massachusetts Association for Infant Mental Health
MassAIMH has collected several resources that mental health professionals may find helpful during this challenging time.
Resources for Providers
In our community, we center on the question, “how are the children?” The pre-recorded webinar above, created in partnership by MassAIMH, MSPCC, and United Way, is an introduction to some ways to nurture young children’s social emotional wellness and infant mental health using a relationship-focused, equity-centered, trauma-informed approach. This webinar incorporates thinking about how COVID-19 affects our youngest children, including an introduction to the science behind the impact of trauma on young children and some strategies that caregivers and early childhood providers can use to support children in challenging times such as now.
Dr. Barbara Stroud has provided this informational video for parents in order to support caregivers in managing the emotional responses and developmental needs of their children during this crisis. Dr. Stroud provides parents with information and skills to support their children’s emotional health, mental well being, and build necessary skills of resilience.
