What is MeAIMH?
The Maine Association for Infant Mental Health (MeAIMH) was founded in 1982 (incorporated in 1987) in response to a growing interest and concern in Maine for the psychosocial and physical well-being of infants and their families. The Association is a non-profit interdisciplinary organization that:
- Encourages awareness of infancy as a critical period in the development of individuals.
- Works to increase the sophistication of its members’ ability to respond to the needs of infants and their families.
- Promotes optimal development and wellness of the child and family through prevention, identification, treatment and support.
- Facilitates cooperation and collaboration among groups, agencies and individuals that serve children and families in Maine.
The MeAIMH holds training conferences each year in May and also sponsors additional courses, clinical institutes and seminars of interest to social workers, psychologists, day care providers, early intervention specialists, nurses and members of other professions who work with infants, young children and their families.
The Association Board meetings are held monthly and are open to Association members and their guests.

The mission of the Maine Association for Infant Mental Health is to promote through education and advocacy, healthy early relationships and their vital importance to infants, children, and their families.
Because member dues only partially offset expenses of the Association, donations in excess of dues are extremely valuable. MeAIMH is a 501c3 organization.
