Mental Health Courses

Mental health refers to a person’s emotional, psychological and social wellbeing. Mental health workers provide vital support to people in the community who are struggling with mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. As well as delivering specialised individual services and intervention strategies, mental health workers also promote community-wide strategies and programs to raise awareness about the importance of mental health.

Mental health courses equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to pursue careers in a range of areas, particularly in the community support sector. As a mental health student, you’ll learn how to build relationships with clients and provide them with the support they need to manage mental illness and psychiatric disability.

Become an expert in the field of mental health and help individuals better handle or resolve psychological issues. Offer counselling and support to clients with anxiety, depression or post-traumatic stress disorder.
