Mental Health Coordinating Council has launched our third biennial Mental Health Workforce Survey for community-managed organisations.
We are inviting MHCC Member Organisations to take part in this important data collection and help gather information that will be used to advocate on behalf of the sector on workforce issues.
The MHCC Workforce Survey is the only primary collection of workforce data from the community-managed mental health sector in New South Wales and gathers important insights into workforce issues and trends. Results will be released in our Mental Health Workforce Profile in mid-November.
Since 2019 MHCC has been one of the few mental health peak bodies in Australia exploring the current mental health workforce in the community managed sector.
Now, a third survey has been launched and it is more important than ever for people to respond considering the many issues facing the sector. This third survey will provide a critical third data point providing a more accurate analysis of future workforce trends.
We are urging our Members to please respond to the survey and provide your thoughts and views on the issues that matter most. The results will enable us as your peak body to lobby effectively and with proper understanding.
A high response rate for this survey is crucial to the Survey’s success.
The Survey consists of a set of questions that gather data on your current workforce profile, workforce shortages and future workforce needs.
Insights into workforce have never been more important. We know that workforce growth and sustainability are among the most pressing issues facing community-managed mental health organisations. Results gathered will be used to advocate on behalf of our members for increased focus on workforce issues.
Member organisations will have received the Survey through an email to their organisation’s MHCC Member Representative.
