About Mental Health at Victoria University Online

The negative effects of mental ill-health can be debilitating for individuals, and devastating for families and communities. We need professionals in mental health to deliver the leadership, care and support that will change—and save—lives.

During this course, you will learn to apply contemporary approaches informed by local, national and international health priorities and principles. You will undertake important research to contribute to our growing understanding of mental health. You will also explore advanced care strategies, therapies and interventions to create better outcomes for people from diverse and vulnerable populations.

Studying a contemporary curriculum designed by mental health experts, you will build a comprehensive mental health practice, based on research and evidence, trauma-informed care, and collaboration across mental health services.


With VU Online’s Master of Mental Health, you can enhance your skills and transform mental health services. You’ll gain work-based knowledge and skills in evidence-based assessment and intervention approaches in mental health, which you can use to successfully engage with individuals, families, carers and clinicians across therapeutic, community and clinical mental health settings.
