The Graduate Diploma in Mental Health enables competent multidisciplinary health and human service professionals to assess and deliver care to people experiencing mental health problems and mental illness, and their families and friends.
Mental health professionals aim to facilitate an improved quality of life for people with mental health problems and mental illness. They actively participate in the recognition, assessment and treatment of people with mental health and co-morbid related conditions and provide support and assistance to families and friends.
Your study will explore biopsychosocial and behavioural sciences, co-morbidity and pharmacology within mental health. You will also focus on articulating your practice of mental health care for people across the lifespan, in a multicultural society, and in metropolitan, rural and remote settings, while extending your skills as a lifelong learner.
As a graduate of this program, you may find employment in a variety of mental health care settings including public mental health, clinical services, rehabilitation services, aged care, children and adolescent services, and community-based organisations.
As part of this program, you’ll study online at your own pace and feel supported by on-campus workshops.
