Endorsement for Culturally Sensitive, Relationship-focused Practice Promoting Infant Mental Health®

Endorsement Registry

The CT-AIMH Endorsement for Culturally Sensitive, Relationship-focused Practice Promoting Infant Mental Health (IMH-E®) is intended to recognize experiences that lead to competency in the infant-family field. It does not replace licensure or certification, but instead is meant as evidence of a specialization in this field. The CT-AIMH Endorsement® is cross-sector and multidisciplinary, including professionals from child and/or human development, education, nursing, pediatrics, psychiatry, psychology, social work, and others. Endorsement® indicates an individual’s efforts to specialize in the promotion/practice of infant mental health within his/her own chosen discipline.

Those who have earned Endorsement® have demonstrated that the individual has completed specialized education, work, in-service training, and reflective supervision/consultation experiences (as defined in Endorsement® criteria) that have led to competency in the promotion and/or practice of infant mental health. Endorsement® does not guarantee the ability to practice as a mental health professional, although many who have earned Endorsement® are licensed mental health professionals.

*Upon earning Endorsement®, each Endorsed professional is required to renew Endorsement® annually. Failure to renew Endorsement® will result in being removed from the Endorsement® Registry. If an Endorsed professional does not think he/she will meet the annual renewal requirements, he/she is able to apply to be listed on the Inactive Endorsement® Registry.
