“Just because no one else can heal or do your inner work for you doesn’t mean you can, should, or need to do it alone.” — Lisa Olivera
My Psych Teacher LLC is the parent company of My Psych Teacher University (MPTU) – a fully online educational community offering flexible interactive courses in psychology, specializing in mental health and other topics under the umbrella of psychology. MPTU courses help students transform their mental health journey from anywhere in the world at their own pace.
My Psych Teacher LLC and MPTU are inspired by a love of teaching, the desire to reach homebound students, and the will to empower those coping with mental illness to achieve mental health. Watch our very first promotional video below!
My Psych Teacher 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 training companies.
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 next step was to create My Psych Teacher University, founded May 16, 2020.
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.
My Psych Teacher LLC hires only the most qualified professional psychologists and psychology teachers to lead courses at My Psych Teacher University. Our teachers are trained in their respective psychology professions and also must complete coursework specifically on teaching as an online educator.
We equip our teachers to be successful in imparting knowledge to students in the virtual classroom environment. Our teachers also complete diversity training and work with students from diverse backgrounds.
For now until Spring 2023, we will hire volunteer instructors who are willing to grow with us, to teach free courses and have first consideration for paid roles as they become available. If you are interested in volunteering, visit https://mypsychteacher.com/careers/.
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.
Through My Psych Teacher University, we provide classes that 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!
