Need for Program

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, 4.2 million people in Australia received prescriptions for mental health-related conditions between 2017 and 2018. Anxiety disorders are the most prevalent illnesses, followed by affective and substance use disorders. This means that nurses and other health professionals in all healthcare settings will increasingly provide care for those with a primary or co-existing mental health problem and need the ability to provide evidence-based, holistic healthcare that is highly dependent on a sound mental health knowledge base.

Purpose of Program

To provide nurses and other health professionals with an update about common mental illnesses and the holistic care of people.
