We continue to connect with the mental health workforce and beyond through our newsletters and Twitter.


Our newsletter subscriber numbers grew this year from 1246 to 1592, averaging almost 30 new subscribers a month. Subscribers identify as allied health, nursing, medical, lived experience workforce or other. These discipline categories are sometimes used to send targeted communications.

The CMHL has sent more than 35 newsletters this year for a range of purposes, including:

  • Promoting the work of partner statewide training providers such as Spiritual Health Association and Victorian Transcultural Mental Health, and the Department of Health
  • Promoting training opportunities
  • Updating the sector on CMHL work, including its free training calendar for area mental health service staff

Please register for our newsletter here.



We joined Twitter in June 2018 and now have over 1000 Twitter followers. Twitter allows the CMHL to engage more broadly with thought leaders andconsumer activists across Australia and internationally. CMHL also prioritises tweeting from conferences to share learnings and experiences. At the 2020 Victorian Collaborative Mental Health Nursing Conference, CMHL was awarded best twitter engagement. We have tweeted over 1400 times since June 2018.

CMHL will continue to use these modes of communication to engage directly with large numbers of the workforce.
