“We have all lived through so much this past year. At times it felt horrible and overwhelming, and at times we surprised ourselves with resilience and grace. I am always amazed when, in the midst of ‘awful,’ there is room for wonder and hope!” Wendy Bender, NYS-AIMH Executive Director
All are welcome to attend. There is no charge for this event.
You are cordially invited to spend Friday morning, March 19th, from 9 am until noon, with NYS-AIMH’s Board, members, staff, and friends. We will share the story of NYS-AIMH’s growth and success in 2020 – despite enormous challenges the year brought. You will participate in creating and carrying the vision for NYS-AIMH’s work in 2021 – to expand Infant Mental Health-informed practice across disciplines, and across the state. You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in small group conversations with colleagues statewide.
