Disaster Mental Health Graduate Certificate

12 Credit Hours Required

This graduate certificate is intended to prepare mental health professionals to serve their communities in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from disaster, terrorist attacks and public health emergencies. It is intended both for mental health professionals and as a supplement to graduate training in the mental health professions. The graduate certificate is also available to civic officials, emergency managers, first responders, and disaster relief workers, as recommended by the National Biodefense Science Board. Participants in this category, however, cannot receive the American Red Cross Disaster Mental Health Services certificate.

Additional Requirements for the Graduate Certificate in Disaster Mental Health:

Graduate Certificate students are required to complete a disaster response scenario as a capstone exercise.
