Children of Parents with Mental Illness #315

Online, On-Demand Continuing Education Courses

Michigan State University School of Social Work seeks to be as accessible as possible. You can now receive social work continuing education credit at your leisure—when it's convenient for you! Save travel time and cost. The new licensure law states that, in Michigan, Social Workers may earn up to one-half of the required continuing education contact hours in person using live, synchronous contact. The remaining continuing education contact hours may be completed in any other approved format. If you live outside of Michigan, check with your state's social work regulatory body. For more information, please see the Licensing and Regulatory Affairs Director's Office Social Work General Rules. (R 338. 2963)

This course begins with illustrations of children describing their experiences growing up with a parent with a serious mental illness. It will help answer some important questions about a group of high risk children who are all too often invisible to health and human services networks. For example, What do we know about children who have a parent with a mental illness? How can social workers and others better recognize and attend to the needs and strengths of COPMI children and their family members?

This course is free for DHHS Workers and Supervisors
