The Bachelor of Community Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs is a unique course that has been developed in close consultation with practitioners, academics, professional bodies, employer groups and policy makers at state and national level. It has been designed to meet the growing demand for highly trained practitioners in the field.
When you complete the course, you’ll be able to provide a range of important non-clinical services to clinical specialists such as psychiatrists, nurses and social workers. You’ll have an in-depth understanding of issues relating to alcohol and other drugs, mental health practice, community development, counselling processes, legal and ethical frameworks, research, working with children and youth, intervention strategies, client advocacy, and working in aged care.
This course is delivered at our Berwick and Frankston campuses.
