Need for Program
Every year, many Australians experience a mental health crisis. A lot of them may present to healthcare professionals who do not have a mental health background and who may be under-equipped to respond. Because of this, there is a need for nurses and other healthcare professionals to identify and clearly understand mental health crises and to update their knowledge on the best way to manage a person with these conditions.
Purpose of Program
This program aims to provide nurses and other healthcare professionals with up-to-date education about mental illness that relates to mental health crises of different causes and presentations and how to respond to them.
Your Learning Outcomes
- Confidently perform mental health assessments
- Understand the different causes of mental health crises and outline the best way to respond to them using practical methods
- Develop therapeutic relationships when caring for those going through a mental health crisis
- Support carers of individuals going through a mental health crisis
