The Perry Foundation Academy of Mental Health Technician (MHT) Certification program is a 5-week program that dives into the history of mental health and teaches the skills needed to be an effective mental health care provider. During this course, you will gain an understanding of the history of mental health and basics of mental health care. You will review the ethics of caring for your clients and will ultimately gain an understanding of developmental psychology throughout a person’s lifespan, as well as how sociocultural influences can impact one’s mental health.
You will participate in the development and implementation of basic nursing care and therapeutic treatment plans for those with mental health needs. Students will receive training in physical assessment, psychiatric and substance abuse disorders, developmental disabilities, health/wellness education, emergency and crisis intervention, and basic nursing assistant skills.
