Copenhagen Infant Mental Health Project (CIMHP)
Mette Skovgaard Væver, Center for Early Intervention and Family Research, Department of Psychology, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
The overall aim of CIMHP is to test the feasibility of an infant mental health screening and indicated pre- vention system and its capacity to (1) detect children at risk of longer term mental health adversaries and (2) cost-effectively alter these risks in a general population. We are in the process of screening a minimum 18.000 mothers and infants using two stan- dardized screening instruments:1) Alarm Distress Baby Scale (ADBB) and 2) Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS). 314 eligible families are randomized into Circle of Security-Parenting or Care as Usual. All health visitors (HV) in Copenhagen are trained and certified in the clinical use of the ADBB. Presentation på engelska
