There has been a major upgrade to a national eLearning website to better support the health workforce gain skills in mental health and wellbeing.
MHPOD is an eLearning website that provides free training based on the National Practice Standards for the Mental Health Workforce.
MHPOD has more than 70 one-hour lessons, videos, audio, checklists and templates. Training covers different mental health topics including recovery, cultural awareness and eating disorders.
The platform caters to different learning styles, including self-directed learning, hour-long modules, micro-learning to help people learn on the go, and self-assessment tools.
Users can track their activities, and some workforces can count their learning towards Continuing Professional Development points. Organisations and Managers can also access the MHPOD Learning Portal to receive reports on staff progress and support their development.
MHPOD is funded by the Australian Government and all state and territory governments.
