The Graduate Certificate in Mental Health offers a holistic perspective on mental health and wellness, delivered in a compassionate and contemplative learning environment.
Contemplative online education - practice self-care while providing compassionate care to others, experience personal development while studying mental health online. Our Mental Health program offers students an embodied, holistic educational experience, with a focus on contemplation, ethics and compassion - unlike any other Mental Health education offered in Australia and is designed for health professionals interested in making a difference to the lives of people experiencing mental illness, whilst taking care of their own wellbeing.
Mindful and contemplative professional practices are now recognised to be leading the way in personal wellness, while facilitating the mental health recovery of others.
All our courses combine leading-edge professional skills with contemplative, ethical and compassionate personal development and it is these embodied, holistic learning foundations that sets apart education at NTI from other postgraduate education providers.
