Make a real difference to those with mental health issues

Do you have an ambition to work within the Health Industry assisting those with mental health issues?

The Certificate IV in Mental Health will give you the foundation knowledge, skills and experience required to consider possible employment options such as support workers, mental health practitioners and residential workers.

This qualification reflects the role of workers who provide self-directed recovery oriented support for people affected by mental illness and psychiatric disability. Work involves implementing community based programs and activities focusing on mental health, mental illness and psychiatric disability. Work is undertaken in a range of community contexts such as community based non-government organisations; home based outreach; centre-based programs; respite care; residential services, rehabilitation programs; clinical settings; or supporting people in employment. Work is carried out autonomously under the broad guidance of other practitioners and professionals.
