MHPN Substance Use and Mental Health Networks

MHPN’s special interest alcohol and other drugs mental health networks offer practitioners the opportunity to hear from speakers 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 with substance use issues.

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.
