WHAT IS INFANT MENTAL HEALTH, COUNSELING FOR BABIES?
This was my first question when I learned of IMH 20 years ago! As I learned more about this model, the more I fell in love. Infant Mental Health can best be summarized as support of a strong start for baby and his or her main caretakers.
The foundations of all domains of human development are laid in the first several years of life. Basic to healthy development are the capacities to love, to feel, to develop a sense of self, and to adapt to one’s environment. Infant mental health is the social and emotional well-being of the very young child in the context of family relationships, beginning at birth and extending through the preschool years.

IS COUNSELING CONFIDENTIAL?
In general, Michigan law protects the confidentiality of all communications between a client and his or her therapist. No information is disclosed without prior written permission from the client.
There are some exceptions to this rule which are required by law:
Disclosure of suggested abuse or neglect of a minor, dependent adult or elder. All therapists are required to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person. The therapist is required to notify the police.
If a client intends to harm him- or herself. I will make every effort to work with clients to ensure their safety. However, if an individual does not cooperate, or is unwilling to take responsibility for their safety, additional measures may need to be taken.
