The North Island Early Child Development Society has been presented a $5,000 grant from the Royal Bank of Canada Foundation to help support Early Mental Health initiatives in the Mt. Waddington Region.

The funding will support certificate training for service providers and offer a variety of services and programs to families, including attachment and early intervention programs, infant massage classes, parent workshops and weekly playgroups.

The funding will also support a three-day conference in Port Hardy entitled “Broken Attachments” April 7-9, 2013, with renown presenter Kim Barthel.

The Society’s Executive Director, Kate Pinsonneault, who is also an Infant and Child Mental Health Specialist, will be overseeing the project.

“We are excited and so pleased to be able to offer these programs and services in the North Island,” says Pinsonneault. “Thanks to our sponsors, they are available to everyone wishing to know more about their child’s emotional and social development or attachment parenting.”

All parents with children from birth to age five are welcome to participate. If you would like a workshop in your community, or would like more information on the programs and services we provide, please contact Pinsonneault at 250-949-3031 or email niecds@telus.net.
