Unit rationale, description and aim

Mental illness impacts on the welfare of many Australian individuals, affecting their capacity to work, sustain relationships, and live independent and satisfying lives. The AASW has recognised the necessity of social work graduates having a working knowledge of mental health problems and psychosocial interventions in order to be able to work with people experiencing mental health problems across a wide range of health and welfare settings. This unit provides foundational knowledge and skills for practice in these diverse areas. The aim of this unit is to prepare graduates for person centred, evidence based generic social work practice.
