To work in the agencies funded by the Maine Department of Health and Human Services and many other human service organizations, you must hold certification in Mental Health Rehabilitation Technician/Community (MHRT/C).
Our minor in Mental Health Rehabilitation allows you to meet the MHRT/C competencies as you complete our seven required courses.
Who Should Consider Certification OR a Mental health rehabilitation minor?
Anyone considering working in the State of Maine in a human service-related field may need the MHRT/C certification, and having it prior to graduation increases the likelihood of job placement and increased starting salary. It may also be helpful for a variety of related professions, such as education, occupational or physical therapy, nursing, and other health care careers.
