Moving and starting a new job can be challenging – especially when you have to build a new set of professional networks. Joining local practitioners at the next Mental Health Professionals’ Network (MHPN) meeting in your area could make doing this much easier.

Four reasons to join your local MHPN group

  • Easily find out what services operate in your local area.
  • Quickly establish a network of practitioners that you can refer to and that can refer to you.
  • Get up to speed fast about the important mental health issues in your new location.
  • Meet practitioners from other disciplines and learn about their fields of expertise.

What happens at an MHPN meeting? 

Meetings can take any format the group agrees. Case study discussions, guest speakers, service presentations, as well as general networking are all popular formats.

You might even get an opportunity to present to the group about your field of expertise at a future meeting.

Getting involved is easy

MHPN supports more than 380 networks across the country.

Find and join your local network now to receive an invitation to the next meeting. If there’s not a network in your area, we can work with you to start one.
