DTI, SIIT prepare for inaugural Mental Health & Wellness Diploma cohort


The Dumont Technical Institute and Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technology will offer a new two-year Mental Health and Wellness diploma program this Fall. The program covers topics such as wellness, youth care, addictions, case management and assessment, and Indigenous models of healing. Graduates will be prepared for work as social and community service workers in a variety of workplaces. “After the last few years during and post-pandemic, there has become a greater need for awareness, services, and service providers in the area of mental health and wellness,” stated the institution. “We are hoping this program helps fill in these gaps.”
