Training Expression of Interest


Mental Health and AOD


This training is being offered as part of a pilot and is only available for participants working in the mental health or AOD sectors. As there are limited spaces available, each course will consist of 10 spaces for mental health workers, and 10 spaces for AOD workers; this is to promote cross sector collaboration as relevant to the course content. Upon submitting your expression of interest (EOI), your application will be reviewed and a decision will be made based on eligibility criteria and access and equity principles.

MHCC will confirm the outcome with each person who has submitted an EOI via email by 20 June 2024. If you are unsuccessful in this application but eligible for attending another date, MHCC will stipulate this in the email.
