Centre for Mental Health Learning - calendar of training events for Area Mental Health Services

More events have been added to our 2021 free statewide training calendar designed for Area Mental Health Service staff. We know from our last promotion of the calendar that events do fill up very quickly, so do not delay in registering for our events.

Due to the impact of Covid-19, CMHL's ability to deliver a free statewide training calendar for the sector has been impacted. Until June 2021 all of our training will be offered online. Some workshops have not been converted to online format and may not be offered until face-to-face training returns. Other training is still in the process of being converted to online.

This calendar will be added to throughout the year. You can find the calendar here: or via the Learning & Resources menu on our website. See below. We will also publish a printable calendar.

Eligibility criteria

These are free events designed for members of the public clinical mental health workforce in Victoria, (staff employed at Area Mental Health Services, Forensicare or mental health staff from RCH). For example, a social worker working in mental health at Austin Health. Staff from MHCSSs, ACCHOs, AOD or other partner organisations may also attend.  If you do register for an event and it is not clear you are part of the intended audience, your registration will be confirmed two weeks prior to the event start date, or earlier. 

Please note: some of our events have additional criteria such as discipline or previous level of experience. Please ensure you read the full event description to ensure the training is a good fit for you. This allows everyone to get the most out of the training on the day.

Let us know if you can't attend training

Our events are in high demand and most have a waiting list. If you can not attend an event you have registered for please let us know as soon as possible so we can open it up to other people. We understand that unexpected things happen but please inform us. We have had a high number of people not attending events that they have registered for, that means someone else has missed the opportunity. Please do not register for events unless you are sure you can attend. Emails will be sent to managers to notify them when staff do not attend training they are registered for.

We value your feedback

At the end of our events the facilitator will share a survey link to an evaluation. This information helps inform the work we do. It only takes a couple of minutes so don't forget to complete the evaluation when you attend.

Calendar planning

Oversight of calendar planning at CMHL is done by our Learning and Practice Development team which includes our two Learning and Practice Development Coordinators, Jo Stubbs and Jeff Weitzel, and our Events and Administration Officer, Jas Routley. Other CMHL team members also contribute, including our discipline specific educators, the consumer workforce development coordinator and carer workforce development coordinator, the director, and the senior lead.
Calendar planning is also informed by the CMHL's AMHS consultations (see our initial establishment consultations findings here), calendar planning days held with ex-cluster committee members, surveys of AMHS staff and contributions from current CMHL committees

Centre for Mental Health Learning

Our vision is to be the centrepiece for mental health learning in Victoria; leading and driving innovation that strengthens and sustains a flexible, curious, knowledgeable and recovery-focused workforce.
