The Canadian Mental Health Association estimates that 20% of Canadians will experience a mental illness in their lifetime. Each year a growing number of people are diagnosed with mental health issues in Canada and health care professionals, community support workers and law enforcement professionals will regularly encounter them through their line of work. Learning how to properly assess and work with those affected by mental health issues is key to creating a safe and successful community.

The Community Mental Health online certificate program will assist students in further understanding youth addictions and mental health, mental health, culture and modern society, concurrent personality and impulse control disorders, mood disorders and depression, and psychotic and dissociative disorders.

Who Should Take the Course?

The Community Mental Health certificate is designed to provide specialized training for those working in related fields such as healthcare, law enforcement, education and social services. Anyone that works with individuals with mental health or mood disorders will benefit from this training.

This certificate is delivered fully online so that you can complete assignments when it’s most convenient for you, all while receiving support from a dedicated instructor and interacting with classmates.
