Become a leader in your professional community
If there isn’t already a Network in your local area or one that covers the mental health field of focus you are interested in, you can apply to start a new Network.
Each Network requires a practitioner to volunteer to take on the role of Network Coordinator. With administrative, financial, and strategic support from a MHPN Project Officer, Network Coordinators lead their Network in making decisions about the Network’s focus and individual meetings. This role can be taken on by one person or shared between a few people. Coordinators can be independent practitioners or from organisations or services with a shared goal.
With the support of a MHPN Project Officer, coordinators are responsible for:
- deciding the network meeting topic, date and location
- facilitating network meetings
- securing guest speakers
- providing regular feedback to MHPN.
