  • Event Date: 03/09/2019
  • Time: 9:00 am – 1:30 pm
  • Location: The Ballroom, Box Hill Town Hall 1022 Whitehorse Road Box Hill, VIC 3128

The Eastern Mental Health Service Coordination Alliance (EMHSCA) presents this timely and informative local cross-sector forum.

The mental health service sector is experiencing unprecedented reforms. Consumers and carers are struggling to know where to turn when they need support. Health and community service staff are often best placed to assist them with navigating the system.

This forum is for health and community service staff, both clinical and non-clinical, and provides essential information about the various mental health and psychosocial supports now available to people along the mental ill-health spectrum.

The following areas will be included:

An overview of how to navigate the sector

An update on NDIS for psychosocial needs

An orientation to Commonwealth and State-funded ‘Psychosocial Support Services’

An orientation to Stepped care for primary mental health support

A service marketplace

Each presenter will provide a case-based presentation with time for Q & A.

This forum will specifically pertain to inner- and outer- eastern areas of Melbourne.

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people and other peoples of the Kulin nation as the traditional owners of the land on which our work in the community takes place. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
