Introduction to Mental Health

What will I get out of this course?

This course is designed to update health and community volunteers and workers with the concepts, principles, and the philosophical framework of recovery-oriented community mental health practice. Whether you have worked in the sector for many years, or are interested in getting more involved, we can all contribute to creating a community where wellness is a priority.

This unit provides an overview of:

  • the nature of recovery from mental illness,
  • the difference between clinical and personal recovery,
  • the difference between recovery and recovery-based practice,
  • the role of mental health services in supporting people in their efforts of recovery,
  • and the principles and practices of recovery-oriented service delivery.

Using resources written by Helen Glover and Nadine Thomas from Enlightened Consultants, this on-line course has been created with support from both State and National Government bodies.

Upon successful completion of all activities, students will receive a Statement of Attainment for this unit.
