Mental Health for Professional Relationships Certificate

The workplace and finances are the number one causes of stress for the majority of people

Some jobs may carry a higher personal risk than others (e.g. first responders and humanitarian workers), which can have an impact on mental health and be a cause of symptoms of mental disorders. In fact, this is true for most helping professions...but did you think of being a lawyer, financial advisor, realtor, insurance broker or other professions as "helper jobs?" Well, they are!

These professionals are exposed to clients experiencing various traumas on a daily bases and it takes an enormous personal toll.

These health consequences can have costs for employers in terms of reduced productivity and increased staff turnover; not to mention missed professional opportunities. They can also have a negative impact on family and social interactions.

Use the tools in this certificate course to take you and your career to the next level!

What Students Are Saying

I had high expectations and they were exceeded

Kristyn H

I have seen Adam Wiseman present live several times and I always learn something new. I expected the same from this course but wow, I got so many takeaways that I can put into practice immediately. I definitely recommend this course.

For anyone who works with clients and finances

Steven S

I did the whole training in one day! It literally changed my practice and I have already seen big results. Every lesson had something new for me to use. It isn't magic, but it feels that way! My most challenging client is now the one I look forward to seeing the most! These skills work.

I wish I took this sooner!

Sophie W

I not only learned how to better support people experiencing mental health challenges, but I also learned more about what I need to take care of my own wellbeing.
