Statewide Mental Health Enrolled Nurse Educators

CMHL welcomed three Statewide Mental Health Enrolled Nurse Educator postitions in 2020. As of 2022 our Enrolled Nurse Team is made up of five educators. As key members of the CMHL, the Educators work to facilitate connections between MHENs across the state, and provide the most up-to-date training to progress the workforce. 

A flyer with information about our work has been created to help connect us with the sector.

Mental Heath Enrolled Nurse Practice Network 

With the appointment of the Statewide Mental Health Enrolled Nurse Educators, it was a great opportunity to develop the Mental Health Enrolled Nurse Practice Network which plans to meet every 2 months.  

The Objectives of the MHENPN group are: 

  • to ensure that timely and relevant two-way sharing of knowledge and expertise occurs between Mental Health Enrolled Nurses (MHEN) and the CMHL,   

  • to facilitate collaborative planning, training, and evaluation,  

  • to identify opportunities for partnership and collaboration  

  • to ultimately support the professional development of the Victorian MHEN workforce.  

  • to improve transparency of opportunities for growth making the mental health enrolled nurse a valuable employment option to maintain long-term (including support for EN3 promotion and specialty role development). 

If you would like to know more or join the MHEN practice network please email us at en.educators@cmhl.org.au

Statewide Mental Health Enrolled Nurse Workforce Scoping Project 

The Centre for Mental Health Learning (CMHL) is pleased to provide the Statewide Mental Health Enrolled Nurse (MHEN) scoping report to the Department of Health (DH) Victoria.  

This report is the culmination of 8 months engagement with senior representatives from each Victorian Area Mental Health Service, including Forensicare, hereinafter referred to as AMHS. Direct consultation was also conducted with MHEN working in public mental health. Internal CMHL collation, analysis, and documentation of the data has been obtained from this process. This scoping report identifies the MHEN workforce profile across Victorian AMHS to support collaboration, growth, learning and development of our profession.
