IPS has a strong reputation for the successful delivery of training across Australia and into remote and rural regions which would difficult to surpass. On average over 900 people attend an IPS training course throughout Australian annually. Nationally, IPS have been contracted by hundreds of separate organisations Australia wide to deliver our training programs. To date over 22,000 people have attended an IPS’ training course nationally since 2000. IPS attributes this demand to a number of important factors.
- All trainings have been developed uniquely for Aboriginal people by Aboriginal people. The programs are based on over 10 years of research into Aboriginal mental health with many aspects of IPS’ work drawing both national and international recognition. The substantial science and cultural evidence base means that participants walk away with an increased ability to make sense of the very complex interface between mainstream and Aboriginal perspectives of mental health and wellbeing
- The programs are delivered by facilitators who continue to work directly with Aboriginal people and communities in mental health service delivery. This provides authenticity to the delivery of the content and talks to its practical relevance with clients
- The training programs undergo constant review and evaluation to ensure that IPS and our clients are at the forefront of Aboriginal mental health as new information becomes available
Participants come from a diverse range of backgrounds including psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, lawyers, health workers, nurses, teachers, mental health workers, social and emotional wellbeing workers, Aboriginal community members and so on.
