Infant Mental Health (IMH) is a multi-disciplinary field focused on the optimal development of infants and young children within the context of complex emotions and secure and nurturing relationships. Infant mental health specialists work in a variety of settings and represent a variety of disciplines, such as social work, psychology, early childhood education, special education, social policy, nursing, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy.
IMH Programs at MPSI seek to promote optimal social and emotional development of infants and young children by coordinating graduate level education in IMH, offering professional development to individuals and agencies working on behalf of young children and families, and partnering with community agencies to assist with research and evaluation of programs. Consistent with the mission of Wayne State University and MPSI, doctoral students and faculty affiliated with IMH programs conduct research related to the well-being of children and families in a variety of research laboratories across campus.
