The Kansas Association of Infant & Early Childhood Mental Health is an association of professionals in Kansas who are concerned with the emotional development of infants.
KAIMH has three main goals:
- To encourage the realization that infancy is a critical period in the psychosocial/emotional development of individuals
- To disseminate knowledge to its members as well as to combat the sense of isolation of those disciplines working in the infancy field
- To provide information to the general public, which will enhance awareness and bring to public attention the psychosocial/emotional needs of children in the first years of life.

The intent of the KAIMH Endorsement (IMH-E®) is to recognize and document the professional development of those who serve young children and their families. Endorsement provides an organized system of culturally sensitive, relationship-based, infant mental health learning and work experiences. Endorsement by the Kansas Association for Infant & Early Childhood Mental Health (KAIMH) will verify that a professional has attained a specified level of education, participated in specialized in-service trainings, worked with guidance from mentors or supervisors, and acquired knowledge to promote the delivery of high quality, culturally sensitive, relationship-focused services to infants, toddlers, parents, other caregivers, and families.
