As a member of the WAIMH community, we know that you share in our mission to promote and support nurturing relationships for all infants. Given our common goals, we believe that our journal, Infant Mental Health Journal (IMHJ), is an important resource for you.
Available online and in print, IMHJ publishes peer-reviewed research articles, program descriptions/evaluations, clinical studies, and book reviews that focus on infant social-emotional development, caregiver-infant interactions, contextual and cultural influences on infant and family development, and all conditions that place infants and/or their families at risk for less than optimal development. The Journal is dedicated to an interdisciplinary approach to the optimal development of infants and their families, and therefore, welcomes submissions from all disciplinary perspectives, for example, psychology, pediatrics, social work, early childhood, special education, early intervention, and psychiatry. Click here to check out a free online sample issue of the journal.
Perspectives in Infant Mental Health (formerly, The Signal), the quarterly Professional Publication of WAIMH, gives members an opportunity to share research of interest, provides a forum for the exchange of news and views from around the world, serves as a nexus for the establishment of a communication network and informs members of upcoming events and conferences.
A free Open Access Publication at www.waimh.org with no printing costs for authors.

Infant Mental Health
Defining infant mental health as the ability to develop physically, cognitively, and socially in a manner which allows them to master the primary emotional tasks of early childhood without serious disruption caused by harmful life events. Because infants grow in a context of nurturing environments, infant mental health involves the psychological balance of the infant-family system.
