The Mental Health Clinical Pastoral Education Centre

Welcome to our courses for 2019

We offer the standard Introductory Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) program (40 hours) This is the minimum requirement to join any hospital chaplaincy team and we welcome all faiths.

We also offer:
Basic Clinical Pastoral Education in Mental Health Ministry (400 hours). This unit will be conducted:

  • 30 Wednesdays 6th March to 3rd April and 1st May to 13th November, missing school holidays; 8.00 am – 3 pm
  • Venue: Macquarie Hospital, North Ryde – with supervised placements in the Northern Sydney Health Area

This is a unique training opportunity with a limit on numbers.  Rosemarie has been involved with mental health since the 1960s.  Rosemarie and Heather select course participants carefully.  Mental Health is a demanding and sensitive, but fascinating, area to work in.  We welcome all faiths.
We are looking for people with a heart for mental health ministry.  To start training, experience is not necessary.  Participants are introduced to the wards under supervision.
Our aim is to achieve maximum cohesion of closely bonded groups that will provide a safe, supportive environment resulting in optimal personal growth, learning and enjoyment for its members.
