Promoting Recovery in Mental Health
The RNPDC is excited to offer this innovative, timely certification program. Promoting Recovery in Mental Health (PRMH) is a performance-based, interprofessional opportunity that prepares mental health providers to confidently practice psychosocial rehabilitation with individuals living with serious mental health difficulties.
This 29-week program is made up of 14 extensive print-based lessons with instructional activities, underpinned by required readings, videotapes, a community research assignment, and a knowledge examination. Learning labs are used to develop and assess competencies specific to this practice. During four scheduled skills days, you have an indispensable opportunity to practice and have your skills constructively assessed. This assessment is done in your own practice setting, with faculty and peer reviewers, and through candid self-reflection.
Once you complete this program you will be able to use the three phases of the psychosocial rehabilitation process – diagnosis and assessment, planning, and intervention – in supporting individuals living with serious and recurrent mental health difficulties.
Imagine the lives you can touch.
Prerequisite: Learners must be currently working in a mental health setting at the point of applying.
