With the significant role that mental health plays in communities, there is a demand for professionals to connect those in need of services with the appropriate resources. In the Mental Health Facilitation specialization, you will develop the skills to help individuals navigate community mental health services. The program explores the role of mental health facilitation in health behavioral changes, and you will gain a solid understanding of the assessment and referral system for mental health intervention and support. Your dissertation will explore an issue in mental health facilitation.
As a graduate, you will be prepared for nontherapeutic counseling roles such as community mental health clinic coordinator, field service provider, and resource personnel, both in military and civilian agencies.*
Note on Licensure: The PhD in Human and Social Services program, including its specializations, is not designed to lead to professional licensure including licensure as a professional therapist, counselor, social worker, or psychologist.
