Professional training for mental health practitioners 


Resources to Help Practitioners Learn and Connect


Most mental health practitioners have limited training in evidence-based interventions or specialty care delivery. Others, like nurses and prescribers, need current, clinically sound mental health education to help them better serve their patients. Psych Hub fills those gaps by providing courses and learning resources that educate practitioners in treatment approaches proven to reduce symptoms effectively and in fewer sessions. 

75 Precent

75% of licensed mental health practitioners have masters level education, trained as generalists.

Less then 40 Percent
