MHPN Older Persons Mental Health Networks

MHPN’s special interest older persons mental health networks offer practitioners the opportunity to hear from speakers who are leaders in the field of mental health issues for older Australians.
Feedback from network members has been overwhelmingly positive about having a regular space to come together with other interested professionals to learn and share about working with older Australians.

MHPN networks help practitioners:
  • improve patient outcomes.
  • benefit from the experience and knowledge of other practitioners.
  • feel connected to practitioners in your local area.
  • improve referral pathways.
  • become a leader in your professional community.
