Diploma of Mental Health

The Diploma of Mental Health is a vital qualification for professionals who are required to have a high level of specialist knowledge, skills and competencies in regard to this critical aspect of healthcare.

The Diploma covers key topics including laws affecting people with mental health issues, the range of services available and other health related issues.

The Diploma of Mental Health is AMA Training Services’ premier mental health course, delivered via our trainer supported Assisted Self Directed (ASD) mode of study.

The ASD training means you can progress studies at a rate that best suits your work / life balance requirements, confident in knowing that trainer support is only ever a phone call / email away.

AMA Training Services is a Study Loans accredited training provider, which gives eligible students the ability to spread the cost of their studies over a period of up to four years. (see more about Study Loans in the Course Fee section below).
