The UK’s first infant mental health week 6 – 10 June 2016 was an opportunity for organisations around the country to raise awareness about the importance of the first 1001 days: conception to age 2.

In Newcastle, three local events were organised by agencies and organisations who work with families with young children. Prospective parents and parents of babies aged under 2 were invited to attend.

Organisations and individuals involved in the planning and delivery of the event in the West of the City on 9 June were:

o Health Visitors
o Nursery Nurses
o Midwives
o Sure Start
o West End Women and Girls
o NAPI
o Relate
o Speech and Language
o Newcastle City Council
o Welfare Rights
o Riverside Community Health Project
o Action for Children family support
o Breastfeeding Peer Support Coordinators
o HealthWORKS Newcastle

The event was held in a community venue that is familiar to local people and was an opportunity for partners to work together in an integrated way to promote the key messages to enable a universal, holistic and seamless approach to the first 1001 days.

A range of activities, information and taster sessions were available for parents and their children to experience.
