Psychosocial Rehabilitation in Mental Health Certificate Certificate of Achievement | PSYC_SOCI_CA
Humber's Psychosocial Rehabilitation in Mental Health Certificate program is sponsored by Humber's School of Social & Community Services and is affiliated with the International Association of Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services - Canada, Ontario Chapter.
The aim of this program is to provide you with the knowledge and understanding of psychosocial rehabilitation principles and practices and how they are implemented in a range of mental health services based on best practices and mental health reform in Ontario. The program is divided into five courses plus a field experience. All courses, with the exception of the field experience, are offered in the evening. The program will be of particular benefit to practitioners currently working or interested in working with individuals experiencing functional difficulties as a result of a serious mental illness. Our courses are staffed by the pioneers of psychosocial rehabilitation (PSR) in Ontario. Professor Nancy Garner has been an instructor in the program since its inception in 1992. Professor Garner is a trained psychiatric rehabilitation practitioner and a certified auricular detoxification specialist. Her professional affiliations include membership with the International Association of Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services (1986 -present) and former president, Ontario Chapter/International Association of Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services including membership on the International Board of Directors. Nancy is currently the director of Good Shepherd Non-Profit Homes – Toronto. She has worked in community mental health for over 26 years primarily within services for individuals who experience serious mental illness and addictions. Prior to coming on board with Good Shepherd Non-Profit Homes in 2002, Professor Garner held a number of positions in the field including mental health and addictions consultant with the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and a 10-year term as executive director of a supportive housing agency in Toronto.
