Emerald win logo

MHCC ended 2015 on a high note winning a 2015 iDX Learning by Design Awards.

Our recently released Capacit-e course, Language
of Mental Health Recovery, really struck a chord with
the judges who awarded it an Emerald Award
(second place) for Bite Size Learning alongside large
corporations such as Woolworths and Bank of Queensland.

This is an e-learning industry award aimed at recognising the trailblazers and the creative strides being made in Bite Size Learning.

Our Online Learning Officer, Katherine Fardian, will also be presenting the project at the iDX Conference in March 2016.

Language of Mental Health Recovery is part of the
Capacit-e Mental Health Recovery Suite

ACIMH final evaluation report now available!

The Final Evaluation Report for the Aboriginal Careers in Mental Health Project is now available. You can download the Executive Summary or the whole document. This external evaluation covers all stakeholders, and provides feedback on all aspects of the program.

The ACIMH project enabled MHCC to partner with 10 community mental health organisations to offer 46 traineeships across NSW from 2013. Trainees worked full or part time, and studied the Certificate IV in Mental Health, which was customised specifically for Aboriginal people. ACIMH was co-ordinated by MHCC and funded by the NSW Department of Education and Communities (DEC). The Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (PMC) also fund incentives that support the trainees and host organisations.

Please visit our project page for copies of our regular trainee newsletter; the Final Project Report; The final Project Evaluation Report (prepared by the external evaluator) and resources for organisations.

Specialist training for Partners In Recovery

Navigating Support Facilitation is a 2 day workshop, specifically tailored to meet the needs of Support Facilitators working in the Partners in Recovery program. It is the essential first step in preparing staff to make the shift from traditional case management to a coordinated approach to service provision. The training provides a strong foundation in how to build and maintain effective partnerships between consumers and carers and the services they need.

The training package was a collaborative project between NSW PIR organisations, ARAFMI, CAG and MHCC. Since October 2013 it has been delivered extensively across the state, as well as being taken interstate to Melbourne and Rockhampton.

MHCC would like to acknowledge those who contributed to this important project, the PIR organisations who formed the sub-committee and gave generously of their time shape a high quality training product to meet the needs of this emerging workforce.
