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 our 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 courses, programs, and services that meet students’ needs and prepare them for success in psychology and mental health related roles;
- Empowering students to grow where they are planted, through a non-traditional curriculum delivery method;
- Helping the mentally challenged switch from a mental illness focus to a mental health focus; and
- Teaching practical skills to decrease the prevalence of debilitating symptoms of mental illness and promote maintenance skills for mental health.
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.
Why My Psych Teacher University?
Did you know that 5 percent (5%) of adults 18 years of age 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 (4%) 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. However, one of the most empowering parts of mental health recovery is learning that one is capable of meaningful work despite mental challenges, which requires a level of independence often previously thought impossible.
Based on the personal of our Founder, we believe that meaningful work (developed into pursuit of purpose) is key to combatting effects of mental illness including depression and suicidal tendency. We believe that when one is unable to see oneself as an important part of society and or fulfilling meaningful purpose, he or she is alarmingly more susceptible to self deprecating thoughts and the fallacy that he or she would not be missed [if no longer living].
We aim to provide hope and prevent suicide by helping the mentally challenged switch from a mental illness focus to a mental health focus. This internal switch is known to improve independence, which promotes at an inspiring rate, the mental capacity to see oneself as capable rather than incapable of performing in various arenas, including the workforce.
