Adult Programs

Online School Mental Health Academy 

Our Online School Mental Health Academy is completely self-paced, so participants can start and finish when they would like. We have two main tracks:


1. Certified Staff (teachers, administrators, school counselors, school psychologists, social workers, mental health professionals working with schools, etc). The certified staff track in partnership with Drake University can be taken for graduate credit ($210), license renewal credit ($100), or no credit ($35).


2. Support Staff (paraprofessionals, bus drivers, community agencies, before and after school programs, nutrition staff, administrative assistants, etc). While the support staff track does not have credit at this time if students complete all five courses they will receive a School Mental Health for Support Staff Certification from Please Pass the Love.  $25 each course or $85 for all five!

Book Studies 

We are excited to be launching a series of book studies throughout the summer for adults working with students including teachers, administrators, para-professionals, school counselors, and many more. Dr. Jennifer Ulie-Wells will facilitate the much-needed conversations to meet student mental, emotional, and social needs using an intersectional lens.  The book studies are thought-provoking, challenging, and only for those that really want to do whatever it takes to meet student, staff, and family needs.  If you’re ready to be challenged and elevate your expertise, these are must-join opportunities. These can be taken for no-credit ($35) or for license renewal credit ($100). All book studies will start with a pre-recorded engagement class that will be emailed to you prior to the start of class.
