Endorsement® Overview

What is the Florida Infant Mental Health Endorsement (FIMH-E®)?

The Florida Association for Infant Mental Health (FAIMH) is proud to announce that Hillsborough County is the pilot for the new Florida Infant Mental Health Endorsement (FIMH-E®). The FIMH-E® recognizes achievement of knowledge, training, and experience in the area of infant and early childhood mental health. It is multidisciplinary and not limited to one profession and does not constitute a license to practice a particular profession. Endorsement® uses a nationally recognized set of competencies that helps define best practice and guides professional growth.  


FAIMH has adopted the Michigan Infant Mental Health Endorsement® system which is supported nationally by the Alliance for the Advancement of Infant Mental Health. The Endorsement® is one of the first and most comprehensive efforts in the country to identify best practice competencies at multiple levels and across disciplines.
