About Mental Health Professionals' Network

MHPN is a unique government initiative targeted at improving interdisciplinary mental health practice and collaborative care within Australia. MHPN supports primary mental health practitioners through local networks and an online professional development webinar program.

MHPN networks are local forums where interdisciplinary mental health practitioners meet voluntarily to connect and collaborate, and to improve referral pathways and consumer care. Members include mental health nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, GPs and OTs.
