Interprofessional Mental Health and Addictions Post-Degree Diploma
Camosun College has developed a post-degree diploma in mental health and addictions that may be of interest to students in psychology who want to work in the field but do not have the clinical experience and qualifications to do so. IMHA was developed in collaboration with Vancouver Island Health Authority. The program prepares students to engage in assessment, planning, treatment and evaluation of youth and adults experiencing acute, persistent, and/or co-occurring mental health and addiction challenges.
