Mohawk College is offering first of its kind programs in Ontario – Mental Health and Disability Management (MHDM) and Brain Disorders Management (BDM). MHDM focuses on the study of individuals who have a disability, such as neurological, physical and intellectual while experiencing a psychological disorder. Students learn how these disorders are diagnosed while evaluating a range of intervention strategies that are appropriate for clients and families. BDM focuses on the study of a variety of conditions, such as dementia, autism and schizophrenia while exploring topics related to aging, brain plasticity and resiliency.
Both programs offer two semesters of coursework and specialized training using a blended delivery. Students attend classes on selected evenings while using online course hours to review the material for a given week. Students also complete a field placement in the Spring for 336 hours, with all placements arranged in consultation with a Field Placement Specialist.
Both programs require that students have a degree or diploma, preferably in the health or social sciences. All applications for these programs are handled through the Ontario Colleges website. https://www.ontariocolleges.ca/en
