Become a Professional Mental Health Practitioner
New Jersey’s first psychiatric rehabilitation undergraduate degree program, the Associate of Science degree in Psychosocial Rehabilitation prepares graduates to become Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioners, qualifying the graduate to work as a psychiatric rehabilitation practitioner.
Coursework and clinical field experience teach students the knowledge, skills and rehabilitation techniques to begin careers as mental health practitioners. Lectures, interactive classroom activities and the required clinical practicum experience prepare students to provide supportive services to those living with serious mental illnesses. Practitioners provide supportive counseling, case management services, and vocational rehabilitation.
