Children's Mental Health Waiver Service Providers

NOTICE:  The information currently listed in this section is limited as we are in the process of integrating all providers (Children's Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities) into certification and oversight by the Provider Support Specialist Unit - more details will be forthcoming as we build this out.



  • CMHW is in need of people interested in becoming service providers across the State of Wyoming. Having providers available to serve the children/youth and families is key to the success of this program.
  • Waiver service providers are persons or agencies (public or private) who not only meet the qualifications and certification requirements of the Waiver program, but who also posess certain qualities. 
  • Waiver service providers should be strong communicators who are respectful, trustworty, and capable of managing many tasks in an organized manner. 
  • After being approved, waiver service providers are then chosen by the child/family and are authorized to provide specific non-clinical services as outlined in the plan of care.
