Support Service for Students

The Telemental Health Certificate Program comes bundled with three (3) months of our live support webinars (we call them “Office Hours.”) Ask any questions you’d like and either discuss it with us live — or watch us answer your questions on the session recording. You can also attend or watch later to see what other people are asking and talking about. Want more than 3 months? You’ll have an option to purchase access extensions for as long as you like.

This is your way to get direct, personalized access to PCT’s experts while you do the training and build your telemental health practice!
