Mental Health Care Leadership Champions: Certificate of Specialization comprises three programs, taught by local and international Harvard faculty embracing both empirical evidence and real-world lessons. It is a training and mentoring program where professionals from around the world can empower themselves to scale-up evidence-based and innovative programs to address the mental health needs of their communities with knowledge, skills, and support.
