ConnectedLE ABC Framework of Mental Wellbeing

The Framework was developed with a working group of health professionals, lived experience informed advisory group, and representatives from the across healthcare, education, legal and academic sectors. The Framework outlines a set of guiding principles for clinical governance to ensure the delivery of safe and high-quality mental healthcare education.

The Framework has been established to:

  • Adopt authentic lived experience perspectives in co-design and co-creation
  • Increase mental health Awareness, Build knowledge and improve Competency levels of learners
  • Promote health promotion, prevention and early intervention across the continuum of care, including connections to care pathways
  • Adopt a strengths-based approach, underpinned by positive psychology in recognition that inherent strengths and social resources can contribute to wellbeing
  • Informed by the nationally recognised Stepped Care Model endorsed by Government and in the Fifth National Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan
  • Informed by the socio-ecological model that is settings-based, enabling training to be tailored to the specific audience the training is targeting
  • Ensure psychological safety is built into training
  • Build mental health literacy capability of learners to support early help-seeking behaviour, reduce stigma and support inclusive and compassionate care conversations
  • Support measurement of performance outcomes to evaluate of effectiveness of training and support continuous improvement
  • Ensure strong cross sector education and health clinical leadership
  • Ensure professional standards or industry recognised Frameworks are mapped to learning outcomes

Competency-Based Training

Competency based education enables each learner the opportunity to move forward at their own pace in building mental health and wellbeing knowledge and skills. It provides flexibility in the learning process, allowing the learner to build inherent skills, no matter their knowledge background or mental health literacy levels.

ConnectedLE have established set of competencies across the spectrum of mental ill-health and specific needs of the target group. Performance measurement criteria is assessed in two ways:

  1. ConnectedLE Self-Efficacy Scale issued prior to commencement (pre) and end of course (post), is used to measure changes in confidence level for understanding mental ill-health and applying practical strategies to support help-seeking behaviour.
  2. Level of attainment of key skills and capabilities is assessed for each training module through 5 pre-quiz and 5 post quiz questions. Training is outcomes-focused, relying more on the learner’s ability to apply knowledge, skills and abilities to the standards of performance in the ConnectedLE ABC Framework for mental health and wellbeing.Participants who complete the accredited ConnectedLE training course will be issued with a digital PDF Certificate of Completion.Participants who complete the courses can do a refresher course in 3 years’ time, and continue to up-skill by completing micro-credentialing, depending on interest and professional requirements.

Accreditation Statement

ConnectedLE have been awarded accreditation to the National Safety and Quality Digital Mental Health (NSQDMH) Standards  for three years to May 2027. ConnectedLE were assessed by The Institute for Healthy Communities Australia (IHCA) through rigorous certification process and achieved full compliance against the NSQDMH standards.

What does it mean if a service is accredited to the National Safety and Quality Digital Mental Health Standards?

A government agency called the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care wrote the Digital Mental Health Standards to help people identify high quality digital mental health services. They worked with people who use digital mental health, mental health experts and industry to make sure that accredited services pay attention to the things that keep services safe.

An accredited service keeps your information private and they will ask for your feedback They also make sure their services are based on strong evidence.

A service gets accredited by an approved agency that has been trained to check for safety and quality issues. They check evidence to show the service meets the Digital Mental Health Standards so you can know that the service keeps people safe.

The Commission has more information on the Digital Mental Health Standards and what accreditation means.

The following ConnectedLE courses have been accredited against the NSQDMH Standards and can be found on the Commission’s register of accredited service providers
