NSW Ministry of Health, Mental Health Branch is conducting a Mental Health Training Needs Analysis to prioritise training topics for the next five years.
The survey will benefit health, education and social sector workforces under the draft NSW Strategic Framework for Mental Health and Workforce Plan 2018-2022. It will also assist agencies intending to up-skill workforces in mental health. The survey is for mental health and general health workforces. Closes 17 August
In addition to the survey, CMO staff are invited to explore what training you and your organisation need to improve services for people living with mental health conditions and psychosocial disability. Feedback from the focus group will combine with survey findings to inform NSW Health on training needs over the next five years.
