Mental Health Education Partners


HETI Higher Education partners with a range of stakeholders to support excellence in recovery-oriented mental health education.


Being student-centered is at the heart of HETI Higher Education’s approach to learning. We invite students to provide regular feedback on course content and become involved as student representatives within our governing bodies and initiatives.

Student representatives currently sit on the Academic Board, Teaching and Learning Committee, External Advisory Committee and represent HETI at the TEQSA conference student stream.
