MHPN is establishing and supporting veteran-focussed networks across Australia 

What is a MHPN Veteran-Focussed Network?

A group of interdisciplinary mental health practitioners, who work with and support veterans.  Practitioners meet voluntarily four times per year in their local community.  Members include a mix of GPs, psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health nurses, social workers, occupational therapists or any other associated mental health practitioner.

Why join a network?
• Build practitioner relations
• Improve referral pathways
• Professional development opportunities
• Peer support
