The remote and isolated health workforce frequently identify that they feel inadequately equipped to manage acute mental health issues, substance affected patients, and episodes of acute distress resulting from attempted/completed suicide and other traumatic events. This course aims to build participant confidence in responding to such issues.
The Managing Mental Health Emergencies (MHE) course is designed to enable remote health staff to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to respond with confidence when encountering clients presenting with acute mental health issues, substance use, suicidal behaviour or episodes of acute distress.
The MHE course is designed to meet the learning needs of the remote and isolated health workforce (Nurses, Midwives, Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Health Workers/Practitioners, Paramedics and Medical Officers) who assess and manage clients with mental health issues, substance use or episodes of acute distress.
