Are you currently employed in a career related to your TrainSmart Australia qualification?

Yes I am. After completion of my Certificate IV in mental health, I was fortunate enough to obtain a position as a mental health recovery worker- supporting clients in the community to live a more meaningful & satisfying life. I help to motivate them to work towards their goals, complete day to day activities, exercise, self care and most importantly I’m an open ear, listening empathetically whilst showing my undivided attention and care.

 

What is the most important lesson you have learned in your course that you apply in your current role?

What I have learned about the mental health industry has helped me to know how to better support my clients (and family & friends) to help them to break beliefs around stigma, shame & guilt associated with having a mental health illness and to provide them with numerous options of supportive services available to them dependent on needs and circumstances. Negative beliefs and self doubt can easily shy people away from reaching out or help and receiving the proper care and support they require.

 

What are your goals for 2022?

I have enrolled in the Diploma of Mental Health with TrainSmart Australia which commences in February 2020 and I’m really looking forward to extending my knowledge & learning more skills and strategies to be able to work effectively & efficiently with my clients.

 

What advice would you like to pass on to current students?

The value for money but also the value of the education standards provided by TrainSmart is by far the best I have ever experienced!! I have learned so much along the way, even learning a lot about myself and many different coping strategies that I still use to this day if I’m ever feeling overwhelmed, stressed, anxious etc.

If there is a course you are thinking about enrolling into but are holding back, I say GO FOR IT!! Investing in yourself is by far the best investment you will ever make.
