The Certificate in Community Mental Health: Theory and Practice, involves completing a specific set of psychology courses, as well as doing volunteer placements in community organizations.
Students are trained in the principles of mental health, including psychological well-being and neuropsychological disorders, and learn about the types of interventions that are designed to support those with mental illness. Recipients of the certificate are valuable members of their community and may be attractive employment or graduate school prospects.
There are a limited number of places available in this program. Students will normally apply at the end of their second year of studies, but should contact their Academic Advisor as soon as possible.
