Introducing Emerging Minds Families: Resources and Information to Support Infant and Child Mental Health

Emerging Minds provides resources, information and tools to professionals and organisations working with children, parents and families to support child mental health and wellbeing. 


This week we are delighted to launch Emerging Minds Families – a brand new suite of resources that have been developed to meet the needs of parents and families looking for information and support regarding infant and child mental health.


Developed in collaboration with family members with lived experience, practitioners and using the latest research, Emerging Minds Families offers practical, accessible, and evidence-based information including videos, fact sheets, animations and podcasts.


These new resources have been designed for practitioners to share and use with the parents and families they work with, or for parents and families to access directly. They are available for free and are intended to improve the mental health outcomes of infants and children in Australia by:

building mental health literacy 
guiding families as they connect with further supports 
strengthening family agency; and
supporting practitioners working with families. 

Emerging Minds Families has over 70 new resources and includes a range of topics, such as: 

Supporting parents and families living with mental illness
Responding to and managing the impact of natural disasters including floods, bushfires and drought 
Understanding and managing anxiety in children and young people; and
Infant mental health and wellbeing.
