MHPN Disability and Mental Health Networks

MHPN’s special interest disability and mental health networks bring together practitioners with a shared interest in this area, giving them the opportunity to hear from speakers and advocates who are leaders in the field.
Network member feedback has been overwhelmingly positive about having a regular space to come together with other interested professionals to learn and share about working with people living with disability.

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.
