The Department of Health has commissioned new training opportunities for the expanding workforce in Area Mental Health Services - Infant, Child, Youth, and Family Mental Health services (e.g. CAMHS/CYMHS), recognising that there are a large number of new recruits that will require access to training and development.  

The Victorian Department of Health is currently funding registrations for clinicians who work in Victorian Area Mental Health Service clinical Infant, Child, Youth, and Family Mental Health services (e.g. CAMHS/CYMHS).

This is available ONLY to Victorian Area Mental Health Services: clinical Infant, Child, Youth, and Family Mental Health.

 

Program details

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 the provision of infant, child, youth, and family mental health workforce development.

The providers include:

Clinicians working in Area Mental Health Service clinical Infant, Child, Youth, and Family Mental Health Services (i.e. CAMHS/CYMHS) 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.
