What we do

Two in Mind is a project of the mental health charity Mind to

‘Optimise the social and emotional environment of the infant’.

This is being achieved in two ways;

1) Early intervention resources: Making early intervention resources (face to face, book and online) available for all family practitioners to use; specifically Enjoy Your Bump (antenatal); Enjoy Your Baby (Post-natal); Enjoy Your Infant (ante/post-natal attachment). Based on CBT.

2) Training: Building capacity in primary care by training family practitioners in the new accredited Level 3 qualification and Level 2 certificate in Maternal and Infant Mental Health, now part of the Healthy Child Programme Wales recommend training.
