The WMHA Certification-

The WMHA certification is for a global training program, offering cultural and scientific learning experiences discussing the needs to support mentally unstable individuals, traumatized persons, and communities worldwide. Experts have advanced their practice and leadership skills in a new global community of practice. The course offers an onsite learning experience of 2 weeks. Certificates of completion are awarded by the WMHA.

The purpose of this certification is to expand the scientific and cultural approach along with the methodology to reduce suffering, minimizing disability, and increasing resiliency for the survivors of mental disability worldwide. This program offers a transformative training experience to create a network of global leaders in mental health recovery.

Field or on-site experiences typically range from 2-week intensive field-based training to summer-long experiences. Members are generally associated with more than one project over the course of their training period. Financial support for field experiences are not provided by the certification program, however, the organization will work with members and fellows to identify appropriate funding sources.

Our team will also support you to participate each day using Zoom audio/video technology, interactive whiteboards, and chat features to ensure real-time discussion, Q&A, and active participation. All you need is a stable internet connection to participate.

Through this certification, you will garner the knowledge and skills required to design, implement, and evaluate mental health programs in low resource settings along with learning ways to conduct and critically evaluate research.
