The Black Dog Institute has launched a new free Health Professional Resource and Education Hub to connect health professionals to online programs, resources and primary care information on mental health.
The platform will provide health professionals with access to evidence-based online resources, including accredited training modules, webinars, podcasts and other e-Mental Health in Practice (eMHPrac) content. The resources are designed to introduce health professionals to online programs and tools, and to demonstrate how e-mental health technologies can be integrated into primary care.
“Australia uses a stepped care model of mental healthcare where the treatment a patient receives is matched to the severity of their symptoms.” explains Jan Orman, GP Services Consultant at Black Dog Institute.
“e-Mental health treatments are great treatment options for many patients with mild to moderate conditions and, in some cases, may be the only treatment needed at that time.”
Users will also be able to connect with other health professionals through the Mental Health Community of Practice, where they can exchange ideas, thoughts and experiences with peers via forums moderated by Black Dog Institute’s team of experts.
New users can sign up to the Health Professional Resource & Education Hub from Monday 20 March. Register now via this link.
