Rural Generalist Nurse Program: Mental Health Care


The Rural Generalist Nurse works across a multitude of health areas, and is required to provide comprehensive care across the age spectrum, often without immediate access to key health care professioanls.

In this Learning Pathway you will identify your own knowledge gaps in the area of mental health. You will be directed to available resources to fill those knowledge gaps - especially the most relevant Mental Health Professional Online Development (MHPOD) modules.

This Learning Pathway is one of five resources in the Rural Generalist Nurse Program. Other resources are available in the areas of aged care, paediatric care, palliative care and comprehensive assessment.


This course is applicable for all NSW Health Clinical Staff and may qualify for up to 0.5 hrs of Continuous Professional Development.
