Infant Mental Health Week

10th Jun 2021

Fostering good mental wellbeing early is so important for children’s development. This
week is Infant Mental Health week, and 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, 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 a parent of a 4 year old.
