The first EA:IMH HV Program was certified in February, 2015. The Parent-Infant-Program of Clinton-Eaton-Ingham County Community Mental Health completed all of the required steps for certification under the direction of Brooke Foulds and Fran Jozefowicz. Two other infant mental health programs in Michigan have expressed interest in applying and working toward certification as an EA:IMH HV program.
