Default Australia: SA Health Vac. - Perinatal and Infant Mental Health (PIMHS) Clinical Practice Consultant

An opportunity that might appeal to appropriately qualified visitors and contributors to this site willing to relocate to Adelaide, Australia.

The Job Description mentions "infant mental health" several times, so it appears the Australian health bureaucracy at least, is amenable to the idea that early traumatic experiences (such as circumcision) can affect a child's mental health and development.

If anyone should happen to be successful in landing a job or contract they first saw on these forums, it would be greatly appreciated if they could donate a certain percentage of net income (maybe 5%-10%) to an anti-circumcision organisation/s in the U.S., or perhaps in this instance, Australia (or if you're not confident in donating the money, invest a similar amount in your own anti-circumcision activities).

It can and I'm sure it does affect the mental development of the person, just like any other trauma a child is subjected to. The sooner mental-health professionals recognize this, the better.
