Our online certification program leverages expertise from mental health, management, and legal fields to help you create a mentally healthy culture for yourself, your team, and your organization. Participants of the program will gain key skills and strategies to create a culture of mental health with their respective companies and share what they’ve learned in an awareness-building lunch & learn conversation.
The program takes place over the course of 3 months and includes four 2-hour virtual training sessions using case studies, scenarios, personal reflection, and action planning tools.
