NSWIOP has been a major provider of professional education in mental health in Australia for over 50 years. It was established by an Act of Parliament in 1964 and through its Board is directly responsible to the New South Wales Minister for Health. The NSWIOP offered quality inter-professional learning for a diverse student population that included psychiatrists, general practitioners, mental health professionals, people with lived in experience of mental health and carers. As such NSWIOP has had a significant impact in shaping and equipping the mental health sector.

In January 2017, NSWIOP will officially become part of the the Health Education and Training Institute (HETI) marking the fulfillment of the announcement made by the then Minster for Mental Health in 2013 that there would be a staged 3 year transition. To enable this new direction, HETI has applied to the Tertiary Education and Quality Standards Agency (TEQSA) to register as a Higher Education Provider and to accredit the new mental health programs. These applications are currently under review by TEQSA. Read more about the transition to HETI

We look forward to you finding out more about our organisation and our exciting future ahead as part of HETI
