HIPAA Training for Individuals:

Mental Health Provider

Who Needs this Course?

Any single individual who works or will work in future for an organization involved in direct medical treatment of patients involving mental health.


Psychologists, Mental health counselor, Psychiatrists, Addiction counselor, Psychoanalyst, Clinical social workers, Psychiatric nurses, Behavioral services, Psychotherapist, Mental health programs, Family and marriage counselor, Religious counselor, Art therapist, Psychiatric Pharmacists etc.


Our Individual Training is for a single individual looking to obtain their HIPAA Awareness training certification (and optionally their HIPAA Security training certification) to satisfy the training requirement under HIPAA and to provide to an employer/organization as proof of training before they can allow you access to their patient’s health information.

If you are an organization looking to train your employees, please go to the HIPAA for Company section, select the type of company and look for the tab of TRAINING: Employees and Compliance Officer.

Our HIPAA Awareness training course is meant to satisfy the training requirement under HIPAA and as such everyone who has access to protected health information must take this course. If you are going to be responsible for HIPAA or you are IT staff that will be involved in implementing HIPAA Security compliance (the IT part of HIPAA) at your organization, then you want to take both the HIPAA Awareness and HIPAA Security courses. The HIPAA Awareness Training contains an overview of HIPAA Security for the average person whereas the HIPAA Security course contains more detailed regulatory information for someone who has to be responsible for HIPAA Security. Most individuals as such will only need the Awareness training course.

These online training courses are valid for all US states and territories and meet or exceed the requirements for HIPAA training established by the federal HIPAA Privacy and HIPAA Security regulations.
