Duration: 6 weeks
Contact Hours: 20-24 hours of study per week
Credit Points: 6
Guided by a case study approach, you will follow the journey of people through their experience of mental health concerns and navigating health systems. You will further your understanding of how the mental health system works within Australia, the types of community-based organisations, services, and resources available to individuals experiencing a mental health issue, and the barriers that interfere with mental health promotion and recovery from an episode of illness. Using contemporary strengths based models, you will consider how to conceptualise mental health concerns from a multidisciplinary perspective, develop your skills in critical and reflective thinking, and support people towards living well.
