It is difficult subject matter and the presenters kept information relevant, factual, and interesting to listen to.

Very satisfied. The teaching was informed by evidence and up-to-date practice. I appreciate that the summit is a way to keep in touch with current research and practice development in Australia and other nations. Thanks to all who make the learning and communication possible!

Well worth it!

The content of the summit was very good. It was informative, current and very relevant for our times. I learnt practical things that I am able to take into my own practice especially regarding Men's mental Health and CAMS. Thank you for this opportunity to listen to experts on the topic of Suicide.

Informative sessions and great speakers

published

I learned so much through this e-summit. I am a beginner in the Mental Health field and this summit added heaps to my knowledge and understanding. It provoked my thinking in so many ways and informed me of aspects I had no idea of before, such as Men's suicidality and mental health, co-designing programs etc. Very well put together with excellent speakers. Thank you, MHA.

Very informative.

published

I was relatively satisfied with the variety. The variety about mental health during COVID times and Men's mental health issues were very interesting.

Not difficult at all except during connection issues.

Excellent, professional and relevant material and presentation

published

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to each presenter and the information they shared. The topics were relevant and very well presented. Each speaker was professional and knowledgeable and I gained many useful resources. Pedro was an excellent facilitator and host, especially during the Q and A. I felt the whole summit ran smoothly, even when there were a couple of technical hiccups out of everyone's control. It was a fantastic way for me to attend in the comfort of my home and at a pace that suited me well. Plus I could re-watch the seminars that really interested me which was a great bonus. I would not hesitate to attend another of these events because I was so impressed. Well done to everyone and thank you very much.

Learned so much

published

I was able to watch and really loved the self care talk, worker care in the workplace, the non pathologising of people and how to talk to people in conversation about suicide. The Indigenous and transgender perspectives were great educators and I have found overall that a topic like suicide prevention in all these areas gives great insight into cultures and genres that may not otherwise be looked apparent to all. Well done Pedro and team. Each year keeps getting better and so appreciated.

Very thoughtful approach to a difficult conversation

published

The presenters were obviously passionate and very skilful.
The Summit was well planned and ran really smoothly
A really efficient way for so many practitioners to come together. Being free allowed so many of us to have to opportunity to attend compared to other forums that may be prohibitive cost wise.
Thank you so much for providing a great experience and the potential for us to improve the way we work with our clients

Well worth the time spent to view and learn from the presenters

published

I got a lot from this summit. Very engaging speakers and excellent, relevant topics. The summit increased my knowledge greatly, gave me much food for thought, and some action planning either for further education and/or also implementing the new knowledge.

Some really thought provoking presentations

published

I want to start of by thanking the mental health academy, and the presenters for putting together this summit. I found most of the presentations comprehensive and engaging, and relevant to the work that I do. I feel like I have gained a better insight into working with people who are experiencing suicidal ideation, as well as working with those who are Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander.

Mental Health Suicide Summit - I very much appreciated this useful knowledge from experienced professionals

Very satisfied -replays were easy to watch & listen & take notes (I was only able to watch the replays due to my other commitment), and I appreciate the generous sharing of slides - thank you, a valuable experience.

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

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

Mental Health Academy
PedroMental 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.

PedroMental 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!
