Infant Mental Health

To promote Infant Mental Health week the Interim Mental Health Champion for Northern Ireland, Professor Siobhan O’Neill has recorded a short video aimed at parents of young children (approximately age 0-4, although not age specific).  She gives her tips to parents about what they can do to support their children’s mental health and wellbeing which is so important for children’s development, and talks about how to encourage young children to express their feelings and the importance of self-care for parents.   Professor O’Neill also draws on her experience as parent of a 4 year old.
