 Mental Health Skills Workshop

Dignity Therapy is a life review psychotherapy where people document important memories and leave messages for their loves ones.

This Mental Health Skills Workshop will benefit student nurses, practice nurses, emergency department nurses and carers who may come in contact with people suffering from mental illness and those who would like to refresh or update their skills and knowledge. This ability to recognise signs of mental illness and how to care for patients whilst having an understanding of the resources available, can lead to increased confidence when dealing with people with a mental illness, which can ultimately benefit your practice. 

Professionals from non-government agencies, industry and those with lived experience of mental illness will share their expertise and stories. Interactive workshops will provide you with the opportunity to practice your skills.

Who is this course suitable for?

New nursing graduates, practice nurses, emergency department nurses, student nurses and carers.
