STUDY MENTAL HEALTH ONLINE AND GAIN A QUALIFICATION

Mental Health Issues Arise Everywhere

Technology and economic prosperity have allowed us to create an exciting, fast paced world; where people have opportunities beyond anything we might have though possible in the past. At the same time we have created a world that moves and changes so fast that many people find it difficult to cope psychologically.
Mental health may have always been an issue, but our understanding of mental health is better today than ever; and there are things that cause mental health issues today, which might not have been such an issue in the past.
 
A knowledge of mental health is valuable for many professions -not only psychologists and counsellors.
 
More people suffer from mental health issues than what most people realize; and all too often, problems we encounter in our day to day lives may be caused (at least in part), by a mental health problem.  If managers and employers understand mental health, they are in a better position to identify, understand and deal with issues that may impact on the workplace. If family members understand, they are better able to support their relatives. Anyone who deals with people in their work, from health industry workers, to teachers, sales staff and others, will undoubtedly encounter people with mental health issues from time to time; and be better prepared to deal with those people if they understand what mental health is all about. 
  • Expand your Career possibilities
  • Foundation course for people interested in working in related industries
  • Professional Development course for counsellors, teachers, health professionals, carers or anyone seeking to deepen their understanding of mental health

STUDY HEALTH MANAGEMENT AND GAIN A QUALIFICATION

Develop an insight into the scope and nature of the Health industry, both mainstream and complimentary medicine.

 
WHY START WITH A FOUNDATION DIPLOMA?
The world is changing faster than ever; and health services are no exception.
The problem with this rapid rate of change is that it is difficult to predict the nature of job opportunities very far into the future. There is no doubt that there will be opportunities in health services; but it may be a mistake starting a 3 to 6 year qualification today and locking yourself into a study program that is setting what you will be studying 2, 3 or 4 years from now (when  everyone is predicting that most of the jobs 5 years from now have probably not even been conceived yet).

Taking a Foundation Diploma allows you to take your studies in smaller steps.

When you complete this Diploma, you will have a broad understanding of health management and human biology. This will make you attractive as an applicant for a health support job, or a more advanced course (eg. Higher Diploma or Degree). If you choose to study further with us or one of our affiliates, you can move on to a more advanced course and be given credits for the modules completed in the Foundation Diplomas. Your choices for ongoing studies with us at that point may be different, and more suitable than those offered at the present.
In our experience, graduates who go to other institutions across many countries, have commonly been received well and granted advanced standing based on studies with us.
