Due to the impact of Covid-19, CMHL's ability to deliver a free statewide training calendar for the sector has been impacted. Until June 2021 all of our training will be offered online. Some workshops have not been converted to online format and may not be offered until face-to-face training returns. Other training is still in the process of being converted to online. We appreciate your patience.  

Eligibility criteria

These are free events designed for members of the public clinical mental health workforce in Victoria, (staff employed at Area Mental Health Services, Forensicare or mental health staff from RCH). For example, a social worker working in mental health at Austin Health. Staff from MHCSSs, ACCHOs, AOD or other partner organisations may also attend. Please note, if you do register for an event and it is not clear you are part of the intended audience, your registration will be confirmed two weeks prior to the event start date, or earlier.
