Congratulations Graduates!

More than 20 graduates celebrated their success with MHCC this week, as the Certificate II and IV courses came together for a graduation ceremony.

The Certificate II course was introduced last year as an entry pathway to further study and work. It proved popular with students as an introduction to study in mental health that comes with a nationally recognised qualification.

Graduates also included Certificate IV in Mental Health and Mental Health Peer Work students, who took the training to develop skills and extend their experience and opportunity in the mental health and peer work sector. Speaker and graduate Claire Hanslow shared the powerful and positive impacts of peer work as a profession. MHCC CEO Carmel Tebbutt spoke to the above average proportion of workers in mental health with higher qualifications. Graduates included MHCC staff member Emma Paino, who was thrilled to attend as both a highly respected MHCC trainer and as a graduate of the Certificate IV in Mental Health. The morning presented the opportunity for family, friends and supporters to share the moment, to meet with other graduates and to chat with MHCC.
