A Series of Webinars about

Parent-Infant Mental Health in the first 1001 Days

The Coventry & Warwickshire Wellbeing in the 1001 Days steering group has organised six webinars to take place during 2021-22. 

We want to strengthen mental health and wellbeing support for parents and infants in the first 1001 critical days (from conception to 2 years of age). To do this, we need a network of well-informed multi-agency professionals, peer supporters and volunteers.

The below webinars are designed to build curiosity, knowledge, and confidence of those at the frontline to promote and support the mental wellbeing of families in the 1001 critical days.
