An Innovative 2020 Initiative to Distribute Clear Face Masks to Child Care Providers Across Florida

Why are Faces Essential for Babies?

This brief video by FAIMH's Board President Dr. Neil Boris explains why faces are so important for babies' brain development and lifelong mental health.


Still want to participate in Faces Are Essential?

FAIMH is no longer donating ClearMasks - but, you can still participate by including our Faces Are Essential informational booklet when you give ClearMasks to your teachers! You'll learn more about WHY faces are essential, get access to more support and training on early mental health, and a tear-off poster (back cover) to use in your program letting your families know that you believe FACES ARE ESSENTIAL and partner with FAIMH to use ClearMasks for the benefit of their children. Contact us to order the booklets.
