Overview

Wellbeing and positive mental health promotion is a new and growing area of the curriculum for teachers and educators, as evidenced by the current and emerging education policy and curriculum frameworks at international, federal, state and community levels.

The Flinders University Wellbeing and Positive Mental Health program is the first course in South Australia to offer postgraduate training in this emerging field. 

The course:

  • is designed to provide a mechanism for policy initiatives in wellbeing and positive mental health promotion to be implemented in schools and communities across the state and nationally
  • aims to:
    • equip teachers, educators and leaders in schools, the community, workplaces, universities and training institutions to specialise and take leadership in promoting wellbeing and positive mental health
    • enhance cognitive skills, reflective awareness and creativity to facilitate the application of evidence-based knowledge, skills and capacities to the promotion of wellbeing and positive mental health in educational contexts
  • can be taken fully online.

Note: The Master of Education and related specialisations does not qualify graduates for teacher registration.
