Dear CCPA member,
Finding relevant CE activities can be challenging. Firstly there is the geographical challenge – not all activities are delivered near your location. Secondly there is the timing challenge – activities do not
always cover the topic of your interest at the time you have available. Thirdly there is the financial obstacle – physical CE activities can be costly once you sum up registration fees and logistics required to
These challenges can be a significant impediment to how much professional development you can access each year – and create a great deal of stress if you are required to attain a minimum number of
CE credits per year to maintain your membership or board registration.
What if you could access over 250 hours of CCPA Pre-approved continuing education credits (CECs), including numerous different topic areas, from the comfort of your workplace or home, and at your convenience? Mental Health Academy and CCPA have partnered to help you with just that – making attaining your mandatory 3-year 36 CECs easy, practical and cost-effective.
To celebrate this partnership, for a limited time we’re offering you a special welcome gift when you join Mental Health Academy. You’ll receive access to the Psychological First Aid program valued at US$595.00 – absolutely free. This is the most valuable CE investment you’ll ever make. But before we get to that, let’s review what you’ll receive with your membership.
When you join Mental Health Academy, you'll have immediate access to all our courses. There are currently over 110 courses to choose from, exploring a diverse range of mental health subjects, including:
Children and Adolescents
Supervision and Self-Care
Loss and Grief
Trauma and Disaster Mental Health
Technology and Social Media
Plus much more...
A sample of current and upcoming courses include:
MHA's exclusive videos are recorded in specialised studios and on site at conferences and workshops, then edited for online learning. This means you can learn first-hand from leading experts, without having to travel from conference to conference and paying hundreds of dollars in registration fees.
You won't find a more current or relevant video library anywhere in the world, with many videos filmed in 2013 or later.
With unlimited replay and easy access to supporting resources, you can watch videos by some of the world’s leading counselling authorities such as Dr Allen Ivey, Dr Mary Bradford Ivey, Dr Samuel Gladding, Dr Cirecie West-Olatunji, Dr Óscar F. Gonçalves, and many others.
In these videos, you’ll watch professionals showcasing evidence-based strategies, new techniques and groundbreaking research to improve counselling outcomes. Many videos include role-plays and “live” demonstrations of skills – as well as various downloadable resources.

During a limited time only, we're offering you a big incentive to join. When you register your Mental Health Academy membership, you’ll get complimentary access to our exclusive 10-hour Psychological First Aid program.
The Psychological First Aid course is a comprehensive 10-hour program developed by Mental Health Academy in partnership with counsellor and psychology educators. The program’s content is referenced from dozens of international, peer-reviewed publications in the areas of disaster relief, social support and critical incident counselling, and framed around the internationally accepted principals of the NCTSN Field Operations Guide.
The Psychological First Aid course will equip you to successfully enter a disaster relief setting or situation of narrower-scale adversity, and offer Psychological First Aid, promoting safety, calmness, empowerment, connectedness, and hope to survivors. It assumes that you know the basics of sitting with someone in distress – that is, the counselling microskills – although many experienced disaster volunteers are not trained mental health professionals, and indeed, those who are will see that the skill set required to successfully offer Psychological First Aid is quite different from that needed in “regular” practice.
Upon successful completion of the course you will be able to:
MHA has partnered with CCPA to make attaining your mandatory CE as simple and cost effective as possible, whilst continuing to expand services to you. Thanks to this partnership, when you join you'll get the exclusive Psychological First Aid course valued at US$595.00.
Also when you join MHA via this offer, CCPA receives a US$10 per month (or US$75 per annum) rebate for the entire duration of your membership. This rebate (you can call it a re-investment) will help CCPA fund critical projects, such as increasing the availability of French-language professional learning offerings, as well as keep CCPA membership fees as low as possible.
It's a win-win for CCPA and its members. Through MHA you'll never fall short of your CE requirements and you will be helping raise much needed funds to promote counselling and psychotherapy in Canada.

"I am just grateful to have such an excellent resource to be able to do professional development. I look forward to being able to do many of the online courses that are available via my account. Who ever thought that CE would become so affordable without all the big conferences, with direct and accurate information in such presentable format?"
"I am thoroughly enjoying choosing courses that are relevant to my client's current issues. It is greatly beneficial to have access to experienced and qualified trainers in various fields, and all from the comfort of my home study! With a busy schedule, I particularly appreciate the flexibility to participate in my own time and at my own pace.
I have managed to watch a video presentation during a lunch break and printed assessment questions to review while travelling. The assessments can be completed at any time, and it is a real thrill to receive the results and print the certificate immediately. It is unbelievable value."
"I've learnt a lot that I hope now to be able to put into practice and in turn help others. The content is just great. A real range of topics to explore and absorb. Thank you very much for making it all possible."
