Interview: Steve Viehweg,
Social worker and founding chair
Indiana Association for Infant and Toddler Mental Health

We know that a baby's first years are crucial for developing the cognitive ability to learn and relate to the world.

Experts in child development realize that even very young children can suffer from depression and other mental health problems.

The Indiana Association for Infant and Toddler Mental Health has begun training mental health and child care professionals about this issue.

Since Sound Medicine's Dr. Kathy Miller has a toddler of her own, she poses pertinent questions for social worker Steve Viehweg, one of the founders of this group.
