OK-AIMH Endorsement® Registry

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

The Oklahoma Association for Infant Mental Health identifies and promotes the development of a qualified workforce to support the emotional development of infants, toddlers and families.

The OK-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 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 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.

Endorsement® is not a license or a certificate. MI-AIMH cannot guarantee the quality of service of any endorsed professional. MI-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, he or she is encouraged, when applicable, to contact the professional’s employer or the individual’s professional licensing body or other credentialing body.
