Waiver of Provider Qualification
All Community Mental Health Services Program (CMHSP) staff, or contract provider staff, delivering Home-based Services for infants and young children, birth to 47 months and staff providing Prevention-Direct Services Models (Infant Mental Health, Child Care Expulsion Prevention) must have, as a minimum, the Michigan Association for Infant Mental Health (MI-AIMH) Endorsement®, Level II (Infant Family Specialist), with Level III (Infant Mental Health Specialist) preferred.
It is understood that staff assigned to Home-based Services or the Prevention-Direct Services Models listed or new staff may not meet the MI-AIMH Endorsement® requirements. In order to facilitate completion of the MI-AIMH endorsement, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) will consider requests from a CMHSP for waiver of provider qualifications for staff providing Home-based Services (pregnancy through 3) and Prevention-Direct Services Models (Infant Mental Health Services or Child Care Expulsion Prevention).
The FY20 Waiver form is to be completed and submitted, per the instructions, to MDHHS.
