Mental Health Academy

Mental Health Academy is the outreach and programming arm of MHAMT that provides Continuing Education (CEUs) curricula for therapists, social workers, attorneys, and other professionals whose work involves mental health awareness.

Mental Health Academy seeks to offer twelve to fourteen such events a year, focusing on issues relevant to these various professional practitioners. These affordable programs will be held throughout the mid-state area as well as other parts of Tennessee.

The programs, half- or full days, are certified by the professional boards licensing the targeted professions and will generally provide three to six hours of CEU credit each. Speakers are chosen for their expertise in specific areas and their awareness of the current needs among the professions.

Check out our upcoming events in the calendar as speakers and dates are finalized. Seminars will be offered for various topics in Nashville, Memphis, Clarksville, Cookeville and Murfreesboro. Here is what is in the works:

Professional CEU Seminars

Licensed professionals are often required to obtain continuing education units (CEUs) by their governing boards.  Our professional continuing education courses are not just for behavioral health therapists, although all our professional training is accredited for LPCs, nurses, and social workers (or provides contact hours).  We also include certified peer recovery specialists (CPRS). We host our Mental Health Law course in November and an Ethics training in December, and we always submit the programs for CLE for attorneys and CME for mediators.  Other workshops and seminars have provided CEUs for athletic trainers, dietitians, funeral home directors, recreational therapists, HR professionals, nursing home administrators, and others.
