About Mental Health Courses

By undertaking a mental health course, you will be at the forefront of supporting those experiencing mental health issues. You will learn the essential principles of mental health services and how to apply these in a recovery-oriented way. You will also learn to advocate for people experiencing mental illness and help them down the road to recovery. From assisting those at risk of suicide to those in crisis situations, becoming a mental health worker is a rewarding and challenging career that makes a real difference in people’s lives.

Mental Health Course Inclusions

Obtaining a qualification in mental health care covers a number of critical concepts, such as increasing the safety of individuals at risk of suicide, effective communication, working with diverse people, promoting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural safety, ethics and legality, first aid, assisting individuals with co-existing mental health and alcohol/drugs issues or psychiatric disability, collaborating within the care network, promoting self-advocacy, and participating in workplace health and safety.

From studying part-time at TAFE to completing online study, a mental health course can typically be completed on your own terms. As part of such a course, work placements or traineeships are typical.

Mental Health Courses

From a full-time degree to a variety of short courses, there are a number of ways you can enter or pursue further study within the mental health services industry. When it comes to entry requirements, typically a satisfactory high school score and basic literacy and numeracy are all that is needed. You can also seek recognition of prior learning. Oftentimes, government funding is available to keep course fees low in this meaningful field of study. Some study options to consider include:

  • Certificate IV in Mental Health
  • Dual Certificate IV in Alcohol and Other Drugs and Certificate IV in Mental Health
  • Diploma of Mental Health
  • Certificate IV in Workplace Health and Safety
  • Diploma of Community Services
  • Certificate III in Mental Health

Mental Health Jobs

Obtaining a mental health qualification allows you to work in a number of different community contexts, such as non-government organisations, outreach, centre-based programs, residential services, respite care, rehabilitation programs, clinical settings or youth unemployment, ensuring the mental and physical wellbeing of all members of the community. Some of the roles available to you include:

  • Mental Health Outreach Worker
  • Recovery Partner
  • Mental Health Worker/Mental Health Support Worker
  • Disability Support Worker
  • Youth Mental Health Worker
