(initiated 2004) Michigan was the first implementation site of GenerationPMTO in the United States. This statewide implementation is a full transfer partnership between Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and ISII. MDHHS serves families with children with Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED). As of (DATE), PMTO is delivered in 39 counties by 115 PMTO clinicians. A team of approximately 7 trainers, 21 coaches, and 14 reliable FIMP raters provide the infrastructure that has sustained PMTO growth in the state. It was in Michigan where the first PMTO Matrix of Roles and Responsibilities for statewide infrastructure was created by Michigan leadership and ISII. PMTO is supported by Federal Mental Health Block Grant funds from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Mental Health Services, contracted through MDHHS.
