Endorsement Renewal is due by 12/31 of each year for all endorsed professionals.
- If you submitted your Endorsement Application in 2022, you do NOT need to submit training, RS hours, or pay the $30 Endorsement Renewal Fee until 12/31/2023. You only need to keep your membership current.
- For those endorsed in more than one category of endorsement: You only need to add 15 hours of training, 12 hours of RS (if applicable) and pay the renewal fee once. Please enter these into the category with the most requirements, if applicable. Please add a “comment” on the training tab of your other application(s): “Renewal Hours for Endorsement was documented in my XXX Application”.
- Note for all endorsed professionals: If you were unable to obtain the necessary renewal hours this year, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can talk through your renewal options with you.
Endorsement Renewal Instructions:
Step One: Login to EASy Note: Your username is a full email address.
Step Two: Click on “profile” on the top right to update the following: demographic information, purchase MI-AIMH Membership (required), you have the option to add online access to the IMH Journal if you would like (Fee is typically $171 and MI-AIMH members can purchase a one year subscription for $55!). Be sure to select your local chapter to receive email updates about local events. There is no extra cost to select one. If your membership expiration date is not correct, please edit it. If you have trouble, you can email email@example.com for assistance. We are seeing this occasionally because of the merge in systems.
Step Three: Click on “Applications” on the top left. Click on My Apps/My Applications to access the endorsement category in which you need to renew. If this looks like your old application, you are in the correct place!
Step Four: Click on “Trainings” tab within the column on the left, and enter a minimum of 15 clock hours per year of relationship-based education and training, pertaining to the promotion of social-emotional development and/or the practice of IMH. a. Note these do not have to be MI-AIMH Trainings. b. For those providing RS, you must enter 3 hours of training on the provision of RS. c. For conferences, please list the workshop names as a “comment” on the right hand side of the tab- you do NOT need to list each workshop as its own entry; however reviewers do need to know the workshop names to approve. If you are still missing trainings from our old renewal system, please create a IT ticket under “Support” to request your trainings to be transferred over.
Note: In 2023, all endorsed professionals must also receive a minimum of one hour of training on DEI; specific to infant and early childhood mental health; as part of the 15 training hours due by 12/31/2023.
Step Five: Click on “Supervision” tab within the column on the left. If applicable, enter a minimum of 12 RS hours from 2022 (Required for I/ECFS, I/ECMHS & I/ECMHM-C* only). If the hours are from the same provider of RS, they can be added as one entry and you do not need to list out each date, just the total sum. Note: In order to count towards Endorsement renewal, the (minimum) 12 hours of RSC should be over the course of at least 6-months.
*Once IMHM-C professionals have earned and maintained IMHM-C for a minimum of 3-years, their requirement for Reflective Supervision shifts to only 10 hours annually and they may begin to count peer supervision or collaborative consultation (with those endorsed at the same category). Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be linked with some free peer collaborative consultation groups.
Step Fix: Lastly, you will go to the “Status” tab within the column on the left. Select Submit Endorsement for Renewal button and pay the Endorsement Renewal fee of $30.
Upon submission: you will receive an automated email from EASy that confirms that your renewal has been submitted. You will receive another automated email from EASy by 2/15/2023 to notify you that your Endorsement® was renewed. The EASy Administrator will contact you if they have any questions about your renewal. Applicants who have not renewed by 12/31/2022, will be removed from the MI-AIMH Endorsement Registry. Applicants that renew after 1/1/2023, will pay a $25 late fee.
