Would You Like to Prevent Mental Illness in Infants and Young Children?
Infant mental health is an exciting new field of study that combines psychology and education to address developmental challenges that put infants and children at risk for mental illness. If you’re interested in supporting infants, young children, and their families, the Mills Infant Mental Health Program is the only one of its kind that enables you to earn a bachelor’s degree in psychology and an accelerated master’s degree in infant mental health with just one year of additional study.
Our program is based on the principle that early intervention with children and their families, community, and culture can positively impact infant mental health. Our master’s degree will prepare you to become a practitioner or researcher who specializes in working with children from birth through age five. You'll gain a solid background in psychology, research methodology, and normative development and have the opportunity to do groundbreaking research in our Early Childhood and Family Research Laboratory working with faculty who are leaders in the field.
