The purpose of our courses and mentoring is to provide clinical knowledge and skills to optimize the care offered by healthcare professionals in each of their own countries. Mercy Ships wants to equip, support, and encourage every participant to continue to learn and share what they have learned with colleagues and students.

Understanding People, Mental Health and Trauma
This 5-part course series is designed to help participants begin to develop a self-directed framework to better understand others and themselves in ways that facilitate healthy change in relationships, communities, and organizations. In doing so, this course is meant to create a safe place for conversations and peer support around mental health, trauma and addressing stigma.
This 10-week virtual training program is designed for healthcare professionals interested in building clinical skills and competencies in palliative, holistic, and end-of-life care. Participants will receive both weekly class instruction and one-on-one mentorship as they learn where and how they can offer support to patients and families with serious health-related suffering due to severe illness.
