Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre's Women's Mental Health Division is a world leader in the subject of women's mental health. The research team, headed by Professor Jayashri Kulkarni, has developed an online short course with four modules: Adolescence, Perinatal, Midlife and Aged. Each module will be released for purchase separately. Register here

The short course is designed for health professionals working with women across the lifespan, and is especially relevant to general practitioners, obstetricians/ gynaecologists and psychiatrists. The content draws on the latest in psychoneuroendocrine research.

The Adolescent module is the first module of the Women's Mental Health Online Short Course. Sections include complex trauma disorder, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, depression & anxiety, psychosis, eating disorders, polycystic ovarian syndrome, the oral contraceptive pill and family violence.


Mental illness has many gender-specific and age-specific characteristics that clinical practice has historically overlooked. The Online Short Course in Women’s Mental Health aims to upskill clinicians to work sensitively and effectively with women of all ages experiencing mental ill-health, and to integrate an understanding of factors such as the role of trauma and endocrinology in the development of mental illness, as well as implications for treatments.

As a key point of contact for women of all ages who suffer from complex mental health conditions, health clinicians play a critical role in early identification, risk assessment and timely intervention. This course aims to cultivate a ‘new thinking’ approach to equip clinicians with the skills to enhance the health, mental health and wellbeing of women across the lifespan.  It will also be appropriate for students studying within the health field.
