  • When you purchase a Certificate you get access to all course materials, including graded assignments. Upon completing the course, your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile.

This course is purely an educational tool and is not intended to replace treatment or other health services. If you or a loved one need help, we suggest that you contact your local mental health provider, or state associations for psychologists, psychiatrists, or social workers.
