Support our work

The World Association for Infant Mental Health has made it its goal to be truly multi-national and culturally diverse. The majority of infants live in developing countries, and clinicians and researchers serving their needs have less resources for sharing the current knowledge and skills of infant mental health with colleagues from other countries.

WAIMH has two current programmes: Sponsor a Membership and Sponsor a Delegate.

Sponsor a Membership (Beacon Club)

Help Fulfill WAIMH's International Development Mission to build capacity for promoting the well-being of infants and their families.

The Beacon Club promotes WAIMH's objectives by

  • Sponsoring WAIMH memberships and Infant Mental Health Journal subscriptions for individuals from developing countries.
  • Extending the influence of infant mental health to countries now developing new approaches to issues of infancy.

Become a Sponsor

As a Beacon Club Sponsor you have the choice of sponsoring a person for 1-3 years for $117.00 per year.

Sponsor a Delegate

The Sponsor a Delegate Programme aims at providing more colleagues from developing countries a chance to participate in the World Congress.

Delegates from Low Income (LIC), Lower-Middle (LMC) and Upper-Middle Income (UMC) countries can be sponsored by High Income Country peers - by individual infant mental health professionals, by Affiliate Associations of WAIMH or by companies. Sponsored delegates will have the opportunity to participate in the Congress, to learn about new scientific and clinical practice on infant mental health, to share their own knowledge and to meet colleagues working internationally in the field.
