"Working through PsychMaven's Profitable Mental Health Trainings course was a significant influence and catalyzed a journey to add passive income & a training component to my private practice of 10 years.
David's easy to follow, personable style, rich and very informative content really helped educate, motivate & give me confidence to start creating online content for my own clients. I challenged myself to webinars and a monthly series of online Zoom workshops in 2021 and was delighted to have great connections with participants. I am using the workshop and other webinar content to catch up to David's inspiring model and create my own academy as he has on PsychMaven. I value his expertise and continued support and can't wait to meet him in person for a live workshop experience in the future.
The ROI for my time and very reasonable financial investment has been well repaid, not only financially, but on a personal and professional level too. I have recommended David's courses to others and will certainly continue to do so. The lovely community feel of his webinars is wonderful too as I have attended his other webinars and trainings too. I look forward to seeing you at David's next training!"
"I wanted to find a resource to help me with offering continuing education courses. Eventually, I found Dr. Hall’s course. After reading the summary of Profitable Mental Health Trainings, I decided to enroll. I devoured the information over a period of four days. I’m not a mental health professional (I am licensed as an attorney), however, I found the content of the course and the further consulting available with Dr. Hall extremely insightful and thorough. The material covered is applicable across multiple disciplines. I now feel more than prepared to propose and develop courses for approval thanks to Dr. Hall and his great course!"
- Sandra Foreman, J.D., L.L.M., Founder, The Spa in Me, LLC (Austin, Texas, USA)
"I found PsychMaven's Profitable Mental Health Trainings course because we wanted to start offering approved continuing education courses with our organization and needed guidance on what our options were for CE approval, as well as how to best structure my teaching when moving it online. This course was a perfect fit! David does not skimp on the helpful information he shares and the course showed us so many shortcuts that we would have never found on our own. As a non-profit organization looking to use our resources in the best way, this course was a really smart investment. We are now running online courses and are planning our future in-person conferences better than ever. I highly recommend this course!"
- Larry McCullough, Ed.D., Founder & Executive Director, Pinetree Institute (Eliot, Maine, USA)
"I have not regretted taking this course. In addition to the amazing teaching content he creates, David goes above and beyond in the available coaching he offers. I was able to build my own 5 hour CE course from start to finish with the guidance on offer here. David's experience and knowledge are invaluable if this is something you are serious about"
