MI-AIMH is trying hard to reach out to all those interested in our initiatives and resources as well as those generally interested in infant mental health. Here are two ways to stay connect via the Internet!
1.) Facebook MI-AIMH!— If you are a Facebook user in your free time, you can ‘like’ MI-AIMH’s homepage by simply searching for ‘Michigan Association for Infant Mental Health’ on Facebook. At the top of the page, there should be a thumbs-up icon that says ‘Like’ next to it. We update this page regularly and anyone can join our page. I invite you to use the discussion section of the webpage to start and continue conversations revolving around infant mental health.
2.) Make MI-AIMH your Browser’s Homepage!—You can have MI-AIMH pop up as your homepage website when you click on your browser for easy access and daily use. The directions are listed below for both PC and Mac users using Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer. Setting it as your homepage helps MI-AIMH as well! For every "hit" or click MI-AIMH gets on its website, our Google Ads ranking goes up and therefore makes MI-AIMH, our products, and services more visible to internet users.
All directions start with the following directions:
a. Click on the browser you wish to open to start.
b. Type in http://www.mi-aimh.org.
c. Proceed to the following directions based on which browser you have opened.
