CHC43315 – Certificate IV in Mental Health

cert-iv

For sixteen years the LiFE Academy has been delivering ground breaking holistic qualifications that address the needs of individuals and families in our society. In 2018 we began the Mental Health course and the feedback has been unanimous – it is just what people need for their own health, the health of those around them and the health of society. It is also considered an important qualification to gain for working in the community where mental health concerns continue to grow, along with the understanding of what it means to truly help people struggling with short or long term mental and physical health problems.

No person wants to be labelled by others and lose their individuality, what we all need is a full acknowledgement of our needs and be on a trajectory to have the best quality of life through innovative strategies. This course focusses on the forces at work in our daily personal and social world and how to respond to these forces in a positive and healthy way for ourselves and others. You will train in practical ways to assess and provide pathways for health and wellbeing from the new standards that are breaking on the conscious of all people professions across the world.

The duration of the course is one year of full time training. Pay only for the modules you enrol in. If your study plans change, you only pay for the modules you have commenced and not the whole course.
