Mental Health Professional Online Development program
We provide funding for the Mental Health Professional Online Development program, an evidence-based online learning resource for people working in mental health. The program is for nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, psychiatrists and psychologists working in mental health in Australia, particularly those in their first two years of practice in Australian clinical mental health services. It is also expected that general practitioners (GPs), consumer workers, carer workers, Aboriginal health workers, and other allied health workers will also find it useful.
