UQ's mental health programs provide systematic training designed to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to contemporary mental health practice. You'll receive advanced training in a variety of evidence-based interventions and the theoretical principles that underpin them.
Teaching is provided by highly experienced practitioners and researchers, many of whom have national or international reputations for scholarship and professional practice. You'll have the opportunity to undertake both structured and independent learning assignments and study in a flexible environment that respects concurrent professional commitments.
This program is an introduction to the specialist knowledge and skills required for mental health practice. You'll learn about the framework for mental health practice (policy, law and models of service delivery) and acquire clinical knowledge and skills in areas such as assessment, treatment planning and widely used therapeutic interventions.
For qualified applicants, Graduate Certificate courses form part of the masters and graduates may articulate into the Master of Mental Health.
