We invite you to Brisbane, Australia, for the 17th World Congress, June 7-11, 2020.
The conference theme is Holding the Infant: creating stories of regeneration, recovery and innovation together.
Australia is a land with a rich story-telling history. Come and join us to reflect on our shared infant mental health journey and create new stories together.
What Attendees of Previous WAIMH Congresses Say
WAIMH was an energizing experience, connecting with friends met at previous Congresses, meeting new colleagues, and hearing messages from those committed to making the world safer and more emotionally safe for infants and young children. Congratulations and thank you to all who made the 2018 Congress such a meaningful event.

It was an honor and a privilege to attend the 16th World Congress for Infant Mental Health in Rome. The opportunity to listen and witness the research, clinical interventions and cross-cultural studies that held varying perspectives of caregiving practices and socio- emotional health was an amazing gift.

A month after the event, I find myself still in awe of the experience of attending the WAIMH Congress in Rome. The future of the field of infant mental health felt limitless as I sat in the plenary room with 1,750 other individuals. I could feel, hear, and see the energy, passion and dedication we had in common. Thank-you to the WAIMH staff and Congress planning committee for providing us the space to be inspired!
