Baby in Mind works with many business partners in the community who recognise the importance of supporting early infant mental health. Our business partners participate in an initiative called Impact 180, and provide financial support to provide scholarships to attend this training.
A range of scholarships are available. Most scholarships are directed toward existing health workers and volunteers who work directly with more vulnerable families. We also have some scholarships available for members of particular professional organisations, as well as women re-entering the workforce.
We have recently made some changes to our scholarship program. Due to (extremely) popular demand for scholarship places, and the rigor and intensity of the training we offer, we now require applicants to demonstrate a commitment and ability to complete the training course. For this reason, scholarship applications are now only open to students who are already enrolled the infant massage training course and are awarded retrospectively, after completion of the qualification.
