Brilliant, not-to-be missed summit

published

What a privilege to benefit from the experience and insights of these high-level mental health professionals and speakers in such a professional finely honed format. It presented a treasure trove of information and resources which I will be referring to consistently in my own practice over time to come. Thank you to the Mental Health Academy and Pedro Gondim for this outstanding learning experience

Variety of topics and presenter backgrounds.

published

Some useful and interesting material presented. Most guest speakers were enthusiastic and delivered content based on their experience, supplemented by data. Others were not so adept and presented in a less inspiring manner.

Overall the content was not difficult to understand or digest. More emphasis on real-world suicide prevention strategies, case studies with outcomes etc. would be an improvement. Perhaps more presenters who work in the field rather than academics?

Thank you to all the passionate and knowledgeable industry leaders and specialist for including us to make a difference

published

The teaching was current and relevant, thank you. I was very satisfied it did struggle to keep focused as it was the weekend of my birthday so I am absolutely pleased that the recoding was emailed. I managed to find time to go through it at my own pace and really focus on the nuggets of information that are relevant to me and the people I come into. Ontario t with. It was sufficient for me to grasp but I found that from the re-recording it help me to answer questions I had missed or just had At the back of my mind.

Great speakers, host and information!

Presenters and content were great. Would have loved an abstract of each talk prior to the start of the summit as I could have better picked appropriate talks to attend.

Very informative Summit

published

The presenters were all very knowledgeable and it was great to have access to the slides and recordings as a recap. As someone working as telephone counsellor I found the information provided was easy to understand but was also thought provoking. Perhaps shorter breaks between the morning lectures and a longer break at lunchtime may have worked better for me and my family commitments. I will definitely enrol for the next mental health summit.

Glad to attend

published

The speakers were all knowledgeable and interesting. Glad that it was available online. Would have been better to have shorter breaks, having one hour between each speaker was too long and made it difficult to attend all sessions. Would have liked a certificate of completion also.

I didn't know what to expect from the summit and it surpassed my expectations. I was very impressed with the speakers and the content and will definitely be enrolling in the next one.

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.

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

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.

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!
