300+ CE Hours

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.

Exclusive Limited Time Offer

Receive a bonus course valued at US$595.00

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.

Psychological First Aid

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:

  1. Define Psychological First Aid, and explain what it aims to do
  2. Delineate its role within the broader scheme of disaster services
  3. Identify the parameters of effective Psychological First Aid: the who, what, when, where, how, and why of service delivery
  4. Know what actions to take to carry out the core principles of Psychological First Aid: those which promote safety, calmness, empowerment, connectedness, and hope
  5. Identify the factors that will facilitate successful entry into the disaster setting
  6. Assess whether you are ready to deliver Psychological First Aid
  7. Tend to your needs for self-care
  8. Provide survivors with appropriate “fact sheet” handouts and other information to help them cope.

What your peers have to say...

"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."
