The Education Committee, in conjunction with the Member Wellness Committee, recognizes the need for increased awareness and support for those suffering from mental health illnesses. Our profession is considered high risk for developing mental health illnesses.
Effective for the 2020 licence renewal period, all members will be required to have a minimum of 5 credits of their total 20 CME credits relating to mental health. This can be mental health conditions, treatments, or supports.
The desire is to help reduce the stigma around mental health while increasing education.
