Welcome

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 Health Education and Training Institute (HETI) marking the fulfilment of the announcement made by the then Minster for Mental Health in 2013 that there would be a staged 3 year transition. In March 2016, HETI submitted a formal application to the national regulator for higher education, the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). HETI was awarded the status of a higher education provider by TEQSA on 27 October 2016 and has been granted the maximum registration period of seven years. Two new courses in Applied Mental Health Studies and Psychiatric Medicine were also approved by TEQSA for the maximum registration period of seven years.
