The History of New South Wales Institute of Psychiatry

The New South Wales Institute of Psychiatry (NSWIOP) is a major provider of postgraduate education in mental health. In 2017, NSWIOP became the Mental Health Portfolio of the Health Education and Training Institute (HETI). During this transition, NSWIOP undertook a comprehensive review of its existing programs and created two new and innovative frameworks which are now being delivered by HETI. Courses have been designed to meet the needs of the mental health workforce with a strong emphasis on application to practice and supporting the journey to recovery for those with mental illness.
