The KySS Online Mental Health Fellowship prepares health providers to screen, assess and manage common mental health problems in primary care settings, improving the capacity to meet the needs of people across the lifespan with mental and/or behavioral health disorders.

The program includes 16 self-paced online modules. Each module identifies objectives and includes a one-hour recorded lecture by a mental health expert, required readings and useful resources. Some of the modules will include associated clinical skills-building activities to assist you with taking what you’re learning online and putting into practice. Unique to our offering, you will be assigned a faculty mentor who will provide expert feedback on your activities. At the end of each module, you will take a post-test assessment on your knowledge of the content covered in the lectured and required readings. When you register, you will receive a copy of “A Practical Guide to Child and Adolescent Mental Health Screening, Early Intervention and Health Promotion, 2nd Edition.”
