e-Learning Courses for Members

MHCC ACT has purchased a limited number of places in two e-Learning courses to develop the sector and support member organisations with mental health training.

  • Capacit-e, developed by the Mental Health Coordinating Council of NSW (MHCC NSW)
  • Shine, developed by the Western Australian Association for Mental Health (WAAMH).

MHCC ACT is making these courses available to our member organisations at $40.00 each, a discount of 67%.

Details on Capacit-e and Shine, and how to apply for these courses, are below.


The Capacit-e Mental Health Recovery Suite comprises three 30-45 minute self-paced modules, so it should take about two hours to complete them.  They must be completed within one month of initial registration. Students receive a ‘Certificate of Completion’.

MHCC ACT has purchased 10 places in the Shine’ Mental Health e-Learning course as a trial, to evaluate this course with a view to making the course available more widely to our members in future.
