Adolescent Mental Health Certificate

Offered by UW-Eau Claire, in partnership with UW-Green Bay

Adolescent Mental Health Certificate

This certificate is designed for educators, human service professionals, social workers, therapists, administrators, clergy, health care professionals, law enforcement, and others who work in the area of adolescent mental health. 


Adolescence is a time of incredible change. Those working and living with adolescents are sometimes left wondering how best to help them or to meet their evolving needs. This certificate will provide you with the practical tools and skills you need to work with young people in any setting. 

Learning Objectives:

Mental health providers report a lack of knowledge of adolescent mental health and skill in treatment of adolescent mental health problems. Validate your knowledge and skills in adolescent mental health by earning this certificate. In addition to practical strategies and approaches you can use every day, you will: 

  • Have a broad understanding of adolescent mental health issues including behavior problems, anxiety, and depression. 
  • Be able to conceptualize adolescent mental health problems from a developmental, preventatives perspective. 
  • Develop and implement intervention approaches that are evidence-based, stress practically and client acceptability, and involve the adolescent's family and school. 

About the Presenter: 

Michael I. Axelrod, Ph.D., is currently the director of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Human Development Center and an associate professor in the Department of Psychology. His research and clinical interests involve finding solutions to common but potentially harmful child and adolescent problems. He has written numerous professional papers and presented nationally on topics involving child, pediatric, and school psychology. Drawing on over 15 years' experience providing clinical services to children, adolescents, and families, Dr. Axelrod uses his knowledge and expertise, along with a little humor, to teach practitioners ways to be more effective in everyday practice.
