2019 Mental Health Super Summit

published

I was really enjoying the webinar that was set as well as the topic that were discussed. The contents were great and knowledgeable speaks offering different perspectives and it has been a great help in my case studies and work. The courses were not hard to understand. Just a little bummed that there's a time limit to access the resources after the event.

Next best thing to a face to face.

published

I was very satisfied with the overall quality of the presenters. To have that amount of knowledge and experience in spot is amazing.
I felt that the course content was ,for me, measured by the episodes of 'ah ha!' moments. Not difficult in academic terms but extremely thought provoking.
Excellent!.

Very good for ongoing education.

I am very satisfied. I am able to consolidate what I learnt at Uni.
The course is difficult enough to be challenging. I want to keep on going, doing extra units.

Flexible accessible learning for rural mental health workers

published

The content of material on the site is vast, as what mental health work it. It allows me to identify a knowledge and or skill deficit in my practice framework. I then research an available course, but also follow up with further reading in the bibliography of power point resources, or through recommendations of further reading by presenters. I have found this very supportive as I work in isolated rural areas. I can learn at my own pace and follow up on material relevant to my current practice.

Well coordinated summit, very professional and a wide range of topics.

published

It was great to have the opportunity to hear a range of speakers, who are all leaders within their own fields. It was professionally delivered and easy to access.
It was very helpful to have the recordings available later. I was unable to commit to all of the live presentation times. It also gave me the chance to process my learnings by pausing the playback; and to spread the webinars out over a couple of weeks.

I just finished the 6 week 'Disaster Trauma Counselling' webinar and I thank you very much for putting on such an interesting and engaging course! I loved Prof. Cirecie's 'hand on 'approach that was informed by such vast and in depth experience 'on the ground'. It was inspiring and I gained a lot from it. I love that the MHA courses are online and allow to engage and learn at a time that is convenient for me. The feedback from the office is always helpful and prompt, supportive and engaged. Highly recommnedable!

Amazingly educational!

published

As a youth counsellor I am always looking for new ways to connect with clients, increase understanding and knowledge, and, keep up to date with the latest research and methods. Mental Health Academy has such a wide range of relevant courses that I am spoilt for choice. The content is fantastic, the research that goes with the content is up to date and the learning modes are all engaging. I only wish I had come across this site earlier.

MHA courses and Summits

published

The MHA programs and initiatives, including the summits enhanced Mental health practice and practitioner skills enormously. The range of topics, the international speakers and the professionalism of MHA's presentation of material has made it possible for everyone to extent their professional skills and knowledge.I have found every aspects of the MHA to be extremely useful, informative, professional, educational, stimulating and at times thought provoking. Not to mention affordable.

The courses are challenging enough to make them valuable but the diverse range of courses offered encourages you to extend your knowledge by completing more.

Hi Siobhan,
I pay the subscription monthly and since being a member have attended a number of Master Classes and the annual Summits and have not paid any extra. So, no, no extra costs/ fees.

Mental Health Academy
Joshua L.Mental Health Academy

Hi Siobhan. Yes, Karen nailed the answer - our membership fees are all-inclusive, so you don't need to pay any additional fees to enrol in our short courses. The fees also cover your assessments, Certificates, and more. All the best!

You can use it to maintain the required annual CPD points for your AMHSW accreditation

Mental Health Academy
Joshua L.Mental Health Academy

Hi Steph, thanks for your question. All our courses are endorsed for CPD by the AASW. As an AMHSW you are also required to undertake CPD which specifically covers Focussed Psychological Strategies, or FPS. Currently we offer over 90 hours of FPS-related CPD - to identify which courses cover FPS, you can either use our "Topics" filter (in the Catalogue page), or you can refer to our FPS Course Collection: https://www.mentalhealthacademy.com.au/catalogue/collections/focussed-psychological-strategies-fps-topics

Yes, the Mental Health Academy is for ongoing professional development, to learn more on counselling therapies, and obtain certificates.
If you are with the Australian Counselling Association the points get added to your OPD log.

Mental Health Academy
Joshua L.Mental Health Academy

Hi Kate! Thank you for your question. Registration for the Mental Health Super Summit is separate to MHA membership, as part of the event's purpose is to raise funds for charity. That being said, after each edition of the Summit, many of the sessions are converted into MHA courses and are available for members via our Catalogue. Thus, by becoming a MHA Premium member, you'll have access to most sessions from previous editions for the Mental Health Super Summit. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask. All the best!
