The E-mental health in practice project aims to promote the use of e-mental health resources among primary care allied health workers across Australia.
The project involves the establishment of an e-mental health support service for health workers in primary care (including Indigenous Health Workers, psychologists, social workers, counsellors, occupational therapists, community health workers, peer support and other allied health workers), as well as practice and mental health workers.
Training opportunities include:
The project also aims to assess Australian primary health care workers' understanding and use of online mental health services. As a part of this there will be three national surveys conducted in 2014, 2015 and 2016. The views of Indigenous Health Workers are encouraged in this process.
The project is a collaboration between the Centre for Mental Health Research at the Australian National University, the Queensland University of Technology and the Black Dog Institute. Funding for the project is from the Australian Government.
