The Integrative Mental Health specialization is oriented for licensed mental health practitioners, and individuals who have a licensable mental health degree. Eligible disciplines include psychology, psychiatry, social work, counseling, psychiatric nursing, and expressive arts therapy (when licensable).  Students in the IMH specialization learn a core of evidence-based behavioral, nutritional, and spiritual/transpersonal interventions.

Practicing within the scope of their professional license, graduates will be prepared to provide integrative medicine interventions for individuals suffering from acute and chronic mental health disorders.
