Mental Health Information for Every Ally


What is an ally? An ally works with others toward a common, worthwhile goal, and that is exactly the purpose behind Psych Hub's mental health ally-oriented professional training. We offer hundreds of videos, courses, podcasts, and other educational resources so everyone can learn how to support themselves or others on their mental health journey.
