Mental Health Professionals Network services to continue

Funding agreement for interdisciplinary mental health networks extended.

The Mental Health Professionals Network (MHPN), an initiative of the Department of Health and Ageing, has announced its operational contract is to be extended.

Given that the current funding agreement formally ended on June 30, the Department has agreed to an extension of this agreement until October 31, 2011 while the processing of a new contract takes place.

The proposed next phase of MHPN will then commence from November 1.

This step will maintain continuity and momentum in consolidating the existing networks, and establishing and providing support to new ones.

It also means that MHPN’s popular series of webinars based on collaborative care, which have attracted over 7000 podcast downloads since late 2010, can be extended over the next 12 months.

Not least, for nurses it means the continuation of an invaluable interdisciplinary platform for presenting their views and contribution to mental health.
