The Master of Mental Health offers a contemporary perspective on mental health and wellness, delivered in a compassionate and contemplative online 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 online 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 also 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. These practices are essential as a protective resource to reduce risk for burnout, empathic distress and compassion fatigue.
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.
