Forensic Mental Health

About FMH

The Forensic Mental Health Program provides an opportunity for a comprehensive training in forensic mental health by coursework. It covers the theoretical and practical aspects of criminal, civil, child and family forensic mental health sub-specialities. It is designed to provide training, skills and expertise required in the forensic mental health workplace both in the private and non-private arena.

The Program can be undertaken on a part-time (two year) basis by flexible online delivery in 2016. The Program is designed for mental health professionals including medical practitioners, nurses, psychologists, social workers and occupational therapists. It is also open to members of the legal profession, police and correctional staff.

Professional recognition: It should be emphasised that the Program is not designed to lead to registration as a psychologist in NSW (unlike the Masters of Forensic Psychology offered through UNSW Psychology, UNSW Australia).
