Mental Health Training and Consultancy 

Targeting risk and complexity

Mental health workers face an escalating range of challenges in their work.

Increasingly, they require a diverse range of knowledge and practice skills in areas including: trauma and recovery orientated practices; risk understanding; service system complexity; the role of values; and a range of intersecting clinical and psychosocial needs.

Our Curious Minds provides practical, evidence based training to address these diverse mental health related challenges.

Our focus is to enhance the capacity of workers and their organisations in the delivery of best practice approaches to care.

Our approach recognises that such best practice requires meaningful and respectful collaboration between clients, carers, peer workers, mental health workers, support workers and managers.
