The ORIMHA Endorsement for Culturally Sensitive, Relationship-focused Practice Promoting Infant & Early Childhood Mental Health® is intended to recognize experiences that lead to competency in the infant, young child-family field. 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 IECMH within their own chosen discipline.
Those who have earned Endorsement® have demonstrated that they have completed specialized education, work, in-service training, and RSC experiences that have led to competency in the promotion and/or practice of IECMH. Endorsement® does not guarantee the ability to practice as a mental health professional, although many who have earned Endorsement® are licensed mental health professionals.
Endorsement® is not a license or a certificate. Name of AIMH cannot guarantee the quality of service of any endorsed professional. Name of AIMH does not have a process by which complaints or concerns regarding ethics can be filed. If one has a concern about an endorsed professional, they are encouraged, when applicable, to contact the professional’s employer or the individual’s professional licensing body or other credentialing body.
