The knowledge competencies for Mental Health & Aging are contained in Domain 1-Behavioral, Psychological, and Rehabilitation Intervention Models*. You can meet this requirement using:

* You can use Domain 1 to meet only one requirement, EITHER Mental Health & Aging OR Substance Abuse with Dual Diagnosis, not both. If you need both Substance Abuse with Dual Diagnosis and Mental Health & Aging and you decide to take a college course or non-academic Domain 1 training, we recommend you apply it to the Mental Health & Aging requirement, as non-academic training options in the area of Substance Abuse and Dual Diagnosis are more readily available.
