About My Psych Teacher University
My Psych Teacher University (MPTU) is a fully online educational community offering flexible interactive courses in psychology, specializing in mental health and other topics under the umbrella of psychology. Our courses help students transform their mental health journey from anywhere in the world at their own pace. We offer products such as apparel and mental health services to help fund our important work.
We are inspired by a love of teaching, the desire to reach homebound students in the wake of COVID-19, and the will to empower those coping with mental illness to achieve mental health.
Not only is this a good fit for us as a connoisseurs of mental health services, it is extremely timely with students taking to online learning everyday as COVID-19 has closed schools across the nation and around the world. These students are part of our worldwide target market, which includes students coping with mental illness and the service providers who guide them.
The goal of My Psych Teacher University is to develop well-rounded psychology scholars (equipped to lead and serve in the world today), by serving as a one-stop university for all mental health needs – including courses, resources, therapist referrals, professional licensing, etc., but at this time MPTU mainly offers private mental health education. MPTU is positioned as a low-cost university with excellent courses and educational opportunities.
My Psych Teacher University was founded May 14, 2020 by a single tutor / teacher – our current founder, Shenica Graham. She saw an untapped potential in the mental health education industry. This potential was in creating a new low cost position while maintaining quality competitiveness with larger more established companies on quality.
This strategy would be created through strategic alliances and partnerships with students, teachers, psychologists and psychiatrists with diverse demographics from around the world. The company has seen steady growth in a mature market, which testifies to the firm’s viable brand and social media strategy.
The My psych Teacher mission is to provide quality educational services and resources to empower the mental health community to learn and heal.
My Psych Teacher accomplishes its mission in adherence to the following purposes:
- Providing a variety of mental-health-focused programs and services;
- Empowering students to grow where they are planted, through a non-traditional curriculum delivery method; and
- Offering courses, programs and services that meet students’ needs and prepare them for success in psychology and mental health related roles.
Why My Psych Teacher?
Did you know that 5 percent of adults 18 years or older experience mental illnesses in any one year? That equates to 43.8 million people according to Mental Health First Aid.
In the United States alone, 4 percent of adults have one mental health disorder. Six percent have three or more disorders – as does our founder. That amounts to major challenges when it comes to occupational opportunities.
Our classes teach practical skills to decrease the prevalence of debilitating symptoms of mental illness and promote maintenance skills for mental health. We make the mind work for you! Enroll in a My Psych Teacher course and learn real solutions for real life today!
