Considering the current situation globally, people are trying to do whatever they can to help - both at an individual level and at an institutional level.
The American Psychiatric Association has launched a training program on 'COVID-19 and Mental Health: Caring for the Public and Ourselves.' It has a FREE certification (with AMA credits for limited time, if that is important for you! Even though it says last date was in April - we were still able to download the certificate till recently.)
Estimated time of completion: 1 hour
The training will be most useful for all those who are directly dealing with people under different forms of distress due to the situation.
The process is simple:
- Register: Create your APA ID (Free)
- Get Trained: See the experts webinar recording
- Get Evaluated: Take the post-training evaluation
