OVERVIEW

 

Mental Health Advocate Certificate

Free certificate course  |  5 Hour Certificate  |  Open to the Public

Our team has partnered with other local organizations to dismantle the narrative of mental health, especially for Black- identifying males. Elevate540 will launch a free, one-day certificate program that focuses on ways Black males become comfortable talking about mental health and become an advocate in their community.

 

The program will cover 3 learning modules, pre-and post-surveys, and a certificate and badge that can be added to your resume at course completion. All modules will take place face-to-face, and will not be recorded. 

We have themed the certificate course Chill Space. Chill Space has the vibe of a support group, which gives participants a sense of direction and comfort.

 

Over the course of five hours, participants will learn a new skill that will be applied in daily functioning. We believe that the Mental Health Advocate certificate will highlight participants' mental health resilience and job marketability.

 

The target audience for the inaugural cohort are persons who identify as Black and male and who are over the age over 21. We recognize that Black males have an increased chance of experiencing a mental health condition. Through Chill Space, participants will learn to navigate these experiences and help promote emotional wellness in their communities.
