About Us

The Queensland Centre for Mental Health Learning (Learning Centre) is a Queensland Health based training provider offering a range of core mental health, alcohol and other drugs education programs for mental health professionals.

Through our training courses, we aim to initially provide practical foundational knowledge for professionals who work with clients that experience mental health problems. In addition, we provide intermediate and advanced-level knowledge and specific skills that focus on consumer safety and mental health recovery plus clinical supervision skills.

Since our establishment in 2006, we have continued to expand our range of training modalities and content. We now provide a series of accessible face-to-face courses including a nationally accredited program, as well as a suite of eLearning courses, online resources and blended learning opportunities.

We can also help your organisation develop tailored training to suit the needs of your staff using a range of learning modalities that meets your scope, timeframe and budget.

Our mission

The Learning Centre continues to grow, develop, and nurture a skilled and sustainable mental health workforce to provide a quality recovery focused approach to mental health care.
