Diversity Informed Tenets Workshop

The Massachusetts Multi-City Young Children’s Mental Health System of Care Expansion Grant, MassAIMH, and partners are excited to announce that we will be bringing the Diversity-Informed Tenets for Work with Infants, Children, and Families full-day workshop to Massachusetts!

“The Diversity-Informed Tenets for Work with Infants, Children, and Families are a set of guiding principles that raise awareness about inequities and injustices embedded in our society. The Tenets empower individual practitioners, agencies and systems of care to identify and address the social justice issues intricately intertwined with all infant mental health work.” — imhdivtenets.org
