We are a unique initiative targeted at improving interdisciplinary mental health practice and collaborative care within Australia. We support primary mental health practitioners through local networks and our online professional development webinar program.

Strengthening collaboration

By supporting mental health practitioners to network on a regular basis, we believe the MHPN project can improve referral pathways and provide consumers with a better service. We also collaborate with other organisations to further develop collaborative care practices. Read more about MHPN's project history or download the Mental Health Professionals’ Network brochure.
