Magellan has partnered with national behavioral health experts to offer a variety of informational and educational resources, including our new Peer Support Whole Health e-newsletter, e-courses and webinars. We offer all of these resources free of charge to providers (such as peer specialists, social workers, counselors, certified drug and alcohol counselors, and psychologists); consumers of mental health services; family members and other interested parties. Please feel free to share this information with others.
E-Courses Self-paced e-courses are free of charge and were developed in collaboration with recognized leaders to provide convenient, self-paced learning opportunities on a range of topics such as Recovery and Resiliency and Peer Support. Choose a skill level that fits your comfort level. The skill levels of the e-courses range from beginning to advanced, so there’s a learning level for everyone. Each e-course features a non-graded pre- and post-test to help participants focus on key points of the e-course.
Ready to start learning? Each e-course opens in a new window and before the e-course begins, you’ll be asked to complete a very brief survey. The first page of the e-courses provides an introduction, specific learning objectives and the process for obtaining continuing education credits (for the Peer Support e-courses only). Navigating your e-course is easy! Simply use the navigation “buttons" and left-menu headings. E-courses are ideal for individual study as well as group learning settings.
