Our Mental Health program is one of only a handful in Australia that has been formally accredited by the Australian College of Mental Health Nurses (ACMHN). NTI’s Mental Health courses encompass a contemplative and reflective learning model that encourages students to expand personally, professionally, ethically, compassionately, and academically. We offer mental health postgraduate study for professionals interested in making a difference to the lives of people experiencing mental illness, while taking care of their own wellbeing.

Using a unique combination of scientific evidence, Buddhist philosophy of mind, contemplative practices, and leading-edge learning design, our Mental Health courses provide students with a learning experience that is responsive to student need, while maintaining academic excellence and integrity. 

NTI’s mental health educators include professionals from mental health nursing, psychology, Buddhist psychiatry and psychotherapy, art therapy, social sciences, coaching and counselling, and mindfulness. Our program is evidence-based and grounded in the latest research, and students will engage with subjects that are anything but commonplace, such as mindful nature connection, art therapy, psychotherapy and Buddhism, compassion at work and more. 

NTI’s mental health program has been designed with the student in mind. While examining academic concepts, scientific research, and modern mental health theories, students will explore personal wellbeing, resilience, self-compassion, self-reflection and mindfulness. Our Mental Health courses provide students with a truly holistic learning experience that will benefit current and future clinical and professional practice, and develop skills that are transferrable to people experiencing mental health challenges.
