Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

The Certificate in Mental Health is designed to prepare MSW graduates for professional practice with individuals, families, and/or groups with mental and/or behavioral health challenges through a wide range of social and human service agencies. The certificate program places a special emphasis on the needs of those who are the most vulnerable and disadvantaged. Direct practice social workers in mental health services have a wide array of career opportunities across a range of public and private settings, including psychiatric inpatient services, outpatient psychotherapy services, child and family services, partial hospitalization and case management services, drug and alcohol services, and private practice. This curriculum best prepares students to pursue independent clinical licensure in Pennsylvania and most other states.
