Abstract

This paper commences with a definition of mental health and wellbeing, followed by a snapshot of mental health, with particular attention to the evolving landscape of social work education in Australia. A discussion of strength based practices and recovery orientated approaches to mental health and wellbeing sets the scene for contemporary social work practice. The response of higher education to changes in the social work field is highlighted with reference to blended pedagogy as a mode of delivery responsive to both changes in the profession and the shifting demographics of the 21st century learner.
