Who is it for?

Empower Teachers and Education Leaders 

According to a 2022 Gallup poll, the teaching profession ranks the highest for burnout.  More than 25% of teachers and principals report experiencing symptoms of depression, and three times as many report job-related stress. When educators struggle with mental health challenges, it can impact their own well-being while working to meet the educational and well-being needs of their students.

Psych Hub’s Professional Training provides specialized courses for educators to better understand mental health and support well-being for themselves, their colleagues, and their community.

A Certificate for Teachers and School Administrators

Educators have a lot on their plates these days, so mental health education needs to be both flexible and time-efficient. The Mental Health Ally for Educators experience enables teachers and administrators to take our series of 10 courses at a self-directed pace.

Educators who complete five out of 10 courses and pass post-tests will receive a Mental Health Ally for Educators Certificate, which demonstrates their proficiency and commitment to a mentally-safe and supportive school setting for all.
