Evaluation of Infant Mental Health in Michigan

The purpose of the Infant Mental Health-Home Visiting Evaluation is to rigorous evaluate the intervention’s impact on critical outcomes for the families served. To achieve this goal we are partnering with the University of Michigan, Michigan Association for Infant Mental Health and 7 CMHSPs to evaluate the IMH-HV program utilizing rigorous outcomes monitoring and evaluation methodology to establish that the families served achieve the intended positive benefit.

It is anticipated that the evaluation will lead to Infant Mental Health being considered an evidence based practice and to meet the requirements of PA291 of 2014.
