Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Professionals working with infants and children across the state currently do not have the appropriate training in infant mental health to be considered qualified to provide quality care. There is a lack of training statewide and currently no endorsement system for professionals in Florida to access and demonstrate their competency within the field. As a result infants, children and families across the State of Florida are receiving inconsistent care by professionals who work with and support children's social emotional development.

FAIMH's top priority is ensuring that ALL professionals serving infants and young children in our state have the information and support they need to strongly support the mental health of our youngest residents (and their families). We view ourselves as connectors--connecting providers to resources; highly qualified providers with the children & families who are in need of services; providers to the support they need to be resilient and strong in this time of great stress. childhood population (birth to 5), in Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health (IECMH), Social Emotional Development and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) to increase early identification of concerns and access to quality services.

FAIMH successfully launched Training Academy in September 2019 to provide competency based training on IECMH topics like adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). FAIMH Miami seeks to expand professional training and support for those who serve the early young children and their families, caregivers and educators across all levels of education that would not otherwise be accessible or feasible due to cost.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

FAIMH aims to define Infant Mental and promote increased understanding. Lead advocacy efforts around Infant Mental Health in the State of Florida and develop a system to support professionals working with infants, children and families. FAIMH wants to ensure that all children birth to five will be emotionally healthy, equipped to learn and develop to their full potential by establishing a statewide training model and endorsement system that will ensure the highest competencies across disciplines of professionals. FAIMH will be the Statewide recognized resource for professionals who work with and promote social emotional development and infant mental health in Florida.

We will provide ongoing support to our members by providing resources and training opportunities, partner with nationally recognized experts around the IMH Endorsement system, vetting a cadre of IMH professionals in Florida, work with partners across communities in the state, determine financing strategies for sustainability, support other systems and programs by providing opportunities for professional development and reflective practice.

A dedicated, all volunteer Board of Directors embarked on a Strategic Planning process starting in Fall 2017 and updated in 2020 to identify current capabilities and needs as well as outcome measures of success.
