Perspectives on Mental Health Care for Babies

Jun 8, 2019



Research and clinical experience shows us the huge impact of stress during prenatal period, birth and early childhood on physical, psychological, social and spiritual well-being throughout life. Investment in prevention, early detection and intervention for mental health problems is very cost-effective during this period for the individual as well for the society. As F. Douglas said in the past century: it is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.

Dr. Binu Singh is founder of an innovative outpatient and day care program for babies and their parents. Together with her multidisciplinary team she offers an approach which integrates the work of William Emmerson- L. Janosh-Bruce Perry- Peter Levine and several other evidence and clinical experience based interventions, such as infant mental health care, diagnostics according to DC:0-5, method of Sherborne, video supported intervention to enhance mutual attunement, floortime, mindfulness, parental education, music and dance therapy, peer support, nature walks, inner child work with parents , etc.

She hopes to inspire care providers with this integrative approach as it is showing to have a positive impact not only on the well-being of the babies but also of their parents and siblings and social network of their families.
