Mission Statement

Our vision is that one day all children will be emotionally healthy, equipped to learn, and nurtured to develop their full potential.

Our purpose is to help implement this vision by defining the need, investigating what interventions are most effective, translating these research findings into public policy, integrating infant mental health services into current programs throughout the state, building a cadre of infant mental health specialists, establishing training opportunities, securing adequate, on-going funding, and continuing to evaluate the long-term impacts in the community.

Our work diligently addresses the needs, develops a plan, secures the resources, and provides services necessary for strengthening the emotional development of young children. A brighter future for Florida's children can be achieved with a greater investment and collective commitment to prevention and early intervention.
