What is a Mental Health Coach?

You know that coaches can play an important role in winning a football game, training for a marathon, or even becoming more productive at work. But is there a role for coaches in mental health care?

Yes, says Wendy Nickerson, PhD, licensed psychologist and professor of psychology at Calsouthern University in Arizona.

“Through mental health coaching, patients can receive evidence-based care immediately and more affordable care as well,” she says.

Dr. Nickerson is also the founder of the Nickerson Institute of Integrative Health Training, which offers mental health coaching certification accredited by US and Canadian regulatory bodies.
