The Department of Health have commissioned new training opportunities for the expanding workforce in Infant, Child, Youth, and Family Mental Health services, recognising that there are a large number of new recruits that will require access to training and development.
The workforce development program complements existing professional and practice development provided by mental health services and contributes to staff individual development plans. Training will be delivered at no cost to services or participants (fees may apply for non-attendance).
The program includes e-learning, online and in-person training from specialist providers with demonstrated experience in provision of infant, child, youth and family mental health workforce development, including:
- Australian Childhood Foundation
- The Bouverie Centre
- The Victorian Centre for Excellence in Eating Disorders (CEED)
- Mindful - Centre for Training and Research in Developmental Health
- The Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne
Staff working in public clinical Infant, Child, Youth, and Family Mental Health services are eligible to register free for the training listed. Many of the offerings are pitched at an introductory level so are most relevant for those new to working in these areas.
The program will be rolled out over 2022 and 2023.
Please contact the training providers directly with specific queries.
