Certificate Overview

Our Certificate in Mental Health Awareness enables you to develop a deeper understanding of mental health issues and distinguish between psychological responses that are within the realm of normality and those that may be more concerning. At the end of the program, you’ll be able to recognize signs of mental health problems, respond appropriately and confidently find available resources when needed to address these problems. You’ll also be able to gain skills to aid yourself in developing coping and resilience in your personal life.

Through both coursework and experiential learning opportunities, you’ll be prepared for various careers in high demand. These careers can venture outside of the psychology field and into areas such as health sciences, nursing and education, where you’ll be better equipped to assess and respond to the increasing mental health needs of the general population.
