Mental Health Specialization
2020 has brought a whole variety of new challenges for mental health and wellness, in addition to the fact that many Canadians were already struggling with how they feel. Now more than ever, non-profit, heath authorities and private businesses will be in need of qualified employees to fill a variety of roles, including support workers and other para-professional roles.
In the mental health specialization, you will build on the knowledge you have gained in the core courses by completing three focused courses in mental health:
- Basic pharmacology in mental health
- Working with people who have an intellectual disability
- Introduction to psychosocial rehabilitation
Examples of roles in mental health settings that this specialization might prepare you for include residential support worker, mental health proctor, crisis counsellor, and more.
