MHA Summit 2021
The summit offered a variety of speakers who were honest and able to challenge our complacency about suicide. The honesty was empowering and was driven by the speaker's awareness of their own losses and genuine concern.

I have attended a few webinars with MHA now but the biggest was the 3 day Suicide Prevention Summit. This was professional & easy to attend with amazing guest speakers. All of it was live too. Being able to access the recordings of each guest was also a bonus
I haven’t had any problems to log in to live webinars.
MHA deserve to be congratulated xx
The summit was fantastic. There were so many different topics that covered a large section of society, literally something for everyone. Easy to access the videos if you were unable to set aside the time on the actual webinar days. Lots of opportunity to ask questions and consider different options. I recommended a lot of articles and website to others that i work with and will continue to recommend this to others.
The suicide prevent summit was excellent, in-depth discussions, the event was well organized.
Very Satisfied, the Experts discussions especially on the topics: delivering crisis support with care, Beyond Gatekeeper Training, Psychological interventions for suicidal youth and their families, suicide prevention in old Age.
Excellent Comprehensive Suicide Prevention Summit
The Suicide Prevention Summit was extremely well organised with a diverse range of experts offering interesting and pertinent information providing the opportunity to learn much useful information to put into practice.
I felt the course was very well presented. Clear and informative information. Felt like it was easy to understand and lots of take away content to put into practise. Loved it.
This was perfect and benefit for me: SUICIDE PREVENTION, how to solve
Teachers were qualified and competent on the topic of our summit. The methodology used by teachers was interesting and attractive. There was no problem for me listen and to understand the suicide prevention.
Suicide Prevention Summit par excellence.
Mental Health Academy has again excelled itself with presenters who are teaching us the most knowledgeable up to date Suicide Prevention courses. Learning is a lifelong experience, especially in the field of Suicide Prevention. Thank you everyone.
I found the summit extremely valuable. There was a diverse range of topics covered and the presenters were engaging. I found the LGBTQI+ presentation particularly interesting. Very well organised. Thank you for providing the content online for an extended period too.
Wonderful summit !!
The numerous webinars presented by the many knowledgeable subject matter experts really brought the summit to its peak with so much to learn and take on of current trends and research. The topics presented were current and helpful.
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
Well worth attending
The online summit was very valuable to my work in the suicide prevention field. It was great to hear from such an array of speakers and especially important to feature the voice of lived experience. I loved that we could watch the webinars at a later date if unable to attend the live sessions.
A yearly PD I look forward to
This is a fantastic resource for anyone in the industry to learn new ways, hear new ideas on supporting through suicide. Great resources and downloads provided for ongoing use. I look forward to this every year and book as soon as I see it advertised as its getting more and more popular with the amazing insightful guess speakers.
Fabulous training at no cost..... Amazing.
The annual Suicide Prevention summit was the first I have attended in a virtual world. The speakers were engaging and the content amazing. This training was like engaging in a collegial workshop, as I could really relate to what was being presented in my own practice, and to have presenters currently in practice makes for an authentic learning experience.
Putting my learning into practice.
I was able to share the information I learnt with students at work. Having facts and insight on suicide prevention and what impacts people is excellent.
The many guest speakers were engaging and generous with their knowledge which made the 3 days worthwhile.
The summit covered a variety of topics, with good presentation and resources. I was very satisfied with the handouts which can be saved and referred to at a later date.
Questions & Answers
Are your courses recognised by the Australian Psychological society for CPD?
Hi Ursula. The APS and the Psychology Board of Australia do not accredit/recognise any CPD activities or providers. Therefore, psychologists are not limited to CPD offered by specific providers – they have the flexibility to choose the CPD options that best suit their own needs. That said, all Mental Health Academy courses meet the criteria for "Active CPD" established by the Board.
Apart from the initial/annual subscription fee, are there any other costs that I might/will incur by using your educational site?
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.
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!
I am a qualified social worker working in mental health. Am I able to use this membership to complete my cpd to obtain mental health social worker accreditation with the AASW. It appeared that I could before I joined but now I am a little confused. Thanks
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
