Study mental health

Mental health workers provide support for people affected by mental illness by implementing community-based programs and activities focusing on promoting mental health. Mental health workers work in a range of community contexts such as non-government organisations, home based outreach, respite care, residential services, rehabilitation programs, and clinical settings.

Growth in the community services industry is strong with the Australian Government expecting to see more than 50,000 job openings in the sector over the next five years.

We offer both certificate IV and diploma level courses in mental health. Our courses will equip you to work with a diverse range of clients, run early intervention and health promotion programs, and advocate on behalf of people with complex coexisting mental health, drug, and alcohol issues.
