(19 contact hours) This groundbreaking certificate program addresses the dramatic shift taking place in the healthcare field as alternative, holistic, and integrative therapies are increasingly being used to treat mental health conditions.
Integrative mental health emphasizes treating the mind, body, and spirit. In this program, you'll learn how this new model of medical care combines scientifically proven alternative and complementary methods with medications and psychotherapy to address the physical, psychological, and spiritual needs of individuals with anxiety disorders, sleep disorders, and mental conditions associated with aging, depression, chronic pain, and Alzheimer's disease. In addition, this program explores the treatment of bipolar disorders in children and adolescents.
Medications and conventional psychotherapy have their place in the treatment of individuals with mental health disorders. However, as you'll learn in this program, there is growing evidence of the effectiveness of other treatment approaches such as nutritional supplements, exercise, light therapy, pet therapy, guided imagery, massage and other manual therapies, music and art therapy, dance therapy, stress management techniques, healing touch, biofeedback, sleep hygiene, acupuncture, and spiritual counseling.
This program is ideal for professionals in nursing and other healthcare fields, as well as individuals interested in integrative mental health.

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the education warrants the overall expense in the long run.
College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings
The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s, education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do. While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades, those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
