Welcome to the resources section for Mental Health Practitioners
If you are a mental health practitioner and you are interested in cognitive behavioural approaches to psychological interventions, then the resources provided in these sections may be useful in the delivery of mental health services to consumers. It is beneficial to have some background knowledge of cognitive behavioural therapy before using the manuals, information sheets or worksheets so that you are best able to use them in practice. CCI provides relevant training for mental health professionals, so please see the training calendar for updates on training dates.

If you have not been trained in delivering health services or are unsure about the use of these resources, then we strongly encourage you to consult with a mental health professional who can provide some further information about the cognitive behavioural approach.
