Continuing Educations Credits and Learning Material for You:

Through our partnership with PsychHub, an online platform for digital mental health education, Molina network providers are able to access PsychHub's library of educational courses and material at no charge. The available online training courses, called Learning Hubs, are designed to unlock a library of companion videos and resources and offer certification or continuing education credits upon completion. Continuing educations credits are available to select clinical licensures (i.e. social workers, nurses, etc.) for many of the courses. Throughout this Toolkit, you will see applicable courses available through the PsychHub platform relevant to each topic. To create an account at no cost, please visit the Molina PsychHub landing page at


We hope the information in this toolkit helps support your clinical practice. We welcome any constructive feedback to make this toolkit as relevant as possible for you and your clinical practice. Please reach out to with any feedback or suggestions.
