I-AIMH Virtual AGM

Dear I-AIMH members,

We hope you are all managing to find some sense of a new way of not only supporting those in your service, but that you yourselves continue to be well in the face of the great uncertainty we all meet every day. 

In light of the new ways of working and being, we have decided that 

This year’s AGM will be held online, on 16th October 2020, from 10am – 12pm. 

What will happen at the AGM?

The AGM will take place in a virtual space and allow us to come together, connect, and speak to the work that we have been continuing to do to support the emotional lives of babies, toddlers, and children over the past twelve months. 

We have a vacancy on the Executive Committee  (EC) this year and we would be delighted to have new members with an interest in supporting the association to spread the message! We have attached nomination forms for your consideration.

An AGM motion form is also attached, should you wish to put forward a motion.

(We will accept nominations for the EC and AGM motions until 5pm on 2nd October)

How do I attend?

– We will be in touch closer to the date with details of the online platform and how to join us, but for now we ask that you RSVP by emailing us and confirming you would like to attend. We will accept RSVPs until 9am on the day, but we invite you to RSVP as soon as possible!

– If you have any colleagues who are not members but would like to attend the AGM, please let them know they can join I-AIMH at any stage during the year, our Membership Officer Ciara is happy to help! You can join the association via the website (http://iaimh.ie/becoming-a-member/).

If you have any queries please let us know.

Take care,


Maria Price,


Irish Association for Infant Mental Health

I-AIMH Competency Guidelines Workshop & AGM

I-AIMH Competency Guidelines Workshop & AGM May 2019

Tallaght West CDI kindly hosted I-AIMH, and its members on a sunny Friday morning in May 2019. Donkeys and Dolly Parton greeted members as they spent the morning listening to Catherine Maguire (Infant Mental Health Specialist and I-AIMH Committee Member) and Marie Mac Sweeney (Past President of I-AIMH and Committee Member) speak to members about the Irish Competency Guidelines, how these might look in certain services, and specifically how Area Based Childhood Programmes (ABCs) have contributed, and could continue to contribute to supporting the emotional development of ‘under fives’. Marie spoke about the continuing plan for rolling out the competency framework and the guidelines, and the momentum that I-AIMH will continue to keep! 

Following this, I-AIMH held its AGM, where we sadly said goodbye to Ger O’ Riordan as treasurer and also treasured long time committee member! Two committee member places were available and both were filled; I-AIMH are delighted to welcome Sharon Byrne and Helen Ryan to the executive committee. Stay tuned for the next update!
