Mental Health
Help Windward Community College train our local workforce!

Mental health is just as important as physical health when it comes to a person’s overall well-being. Mental health technicians care for patients with mental or emotional conditions or disabilities. Acting under a health practitioner’s order, technicians monitor a patient’s physical and emotional health; observe and sometimes interact, teach, counsel, or support the patient; restrain patients when needed; and assist patients with their daily tasks such as bathing and cleaning.

The Mental Health Technician Certificate of Competence at Windward Community College provides introductory training for people entering the field of mental health services or as an enhancement for people currently working within the mental health or behavioral health field.

Trained mental health technicians are in demand locally for jobs at Hawai‘i State Hospital, at Hina Mauka, at elder care homes, and through referrals from Windward Health Center, the state Department of Education, and health care organizations.
