The Graduate Certificate of Education (Mental Health) at Torrens University Australia takes a Design Thinking approach to analyse issues and challenges faced by persons with mental health challenges

The Graduate Certificate of Education (Mental Health) focuses on problem-solving, informed by advanced theoretical knowledge, from a person first perspective. The person first approach allows situations to be tackled from the perspective of the individual, and by doing so shifts the focus from a passive acceptance from the person at the centre of the issue to a more active role where their individual needs are actively considered.

Students will attain advanced knowledge and skills in supporting individuals with Mental Health challenges, in particular, the three most prominent issues facing contemporary educators, Anxiety, Depression and Eating Disorders; and the Learning stream, which provides educators with advanced knowledge and skills in supporting individuals with a range of mental health challenges. Each of these areas of mental health addresses challenges and issues faced by mainstream teachers in 21st Century educational practice. This course offers a model of support and flexible tailored learning to suit individual student needs. You will advance your understanding of Mental Health, and be able to apply positive support skills directly into a range of educational environments.

Graduates of the Graduate Certificate of Education (Mental Health) can progress to further postgraduate studies in related fields of education or allied health. They can also advance their career in advisory roles to schools or specialised roles in education resource teams.
