The Kansas Association for Infant & Early Childhood Mental Health is an association of professionals in Kansas who are concerned with the emotional development of infants. KAIMH has three main goals:
- To encourage the realization that infancy is a critical period in the psychosocial/emotional development of individuals
- To disseminate knowledge to its members as well as to combat the sense of isolation of those disciplines working in the infancy field
- To provide information to the general public, which will enhance awareness and bring to public attention the psychosocial/emotional needs of children in the first years of life.
KAIMH is a 501C3 non-profit and is an affiliate of the World Association for Infant Mental Health.
