The first national certification program in text-based psychotherapy

Despite the widespread adoption of text-based psychotherapy, to date therapists have not had guidance on best practices available for this method of intervention. Led by national experts in text-based psychotherapy Trusst Health Inc. is now offering a science backed training and certification program available to all therapists. The unique, validated Silver (2.5 hour) and Gold Training (7 hour) and Certification Program is now available to both Trusst's own growing group of psychotherapists and to therapists not in their network. The certification is offered for licensed, U.S. mental health practitioners. 

The first-of-its-kind program includes general training for telemental health service, and training in specific text message-based therapy techniques from the latest scientific evidence. Included in the text-based training for therapists are best practices for delivering psychoeducation, behavioral tailoring, cognitive behavioral therapy, and illness management. Following the training program, therapists are required to score 80% or higher on the certification test to be certified for a period of 3 years.
