Explore the evolution of Mental Health and how you can help make a difference
The suites of short courses serve as Professional Development opportunities for teachers across Australia. They also provide tasters and pathways into Torrens Education courses and to serve the wider community in areas of need.
This is the first subject in our Graduate Certificate of Education (Mental Health). It would be offered as a standalone subject without any alterations and in line with regular offerings of this subject. Students passing all assessments in this subject would be awarded a Torrens Certificate of Achievement that could be utilized for credit in appropriate Torrens Education courses.
In this short course, students are introduced to a range of mental health conditions. The person first approach is used in this subject to introduce the problem solving skills required when supporting an individual with anxiety, depression and eating disorders.
Key Study Outcomes:
- Learn the problem solving skills to support an individual with anxiety, depression and eating disorders
- Apply a ‘person first’ perspective to analyse and problem solve issues and challenges associated with Mental Health across the lifespan
