Requirements for Certified Mental Health Paraprofessional

College Degree (BA / BS)
Successful Completion of our Home Study Course

Why obtain a CMHP?  It is getting progressively more difficult to find a job today. 

However, many mental health centers, crisis units, day treatment programs, mental retardation facilities, and training centers are in desperate need of qualified people to assist them in delivering services to their patients.  Many of these positions are labeled “paraprofessional”.

These mental health centers LOVE to hire people who already have training in mental health / counseling issues.  But trained people are hard to find.

If you are at all interested in psychology and working with  people, becoming certified as a Mental Health Paraprofessional could give you the competitive edge you need to get a paraprofessional job in the field.

About Our Home Study Course

Our course, titled “Paraprofessional Mental Health Certification Home Study Program” is based on the very popular and proven counseling method called Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy.  More specifically, it is based on Dr. Aldo Pucci’s Rational Living Therapy — an easy-to-learn approach to helping people help themselves.

Our course will teach you…

    Basic Mental Health Information
        The Common Psychiatric Disorders (Abnormal Psychology)
        Medications Commonly Used in Treatment
        Ethical Principles in Mental Health
        Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Instruction

Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive your diploma and a personalized reference letter that you can present to prospective employers that details what you have accomplished with our course!

Please note that our course is not designed to make you a “Professional Counselor” or to practice counseling or psychotherapy.  That takes years of college education.  But if you are interested in working as a Paraprofessional in a crisis unit, group home, or day treatment program, our course is appropriate for you.
