In order to best meet the needs of the health, social and community services workers across a range of professions, Emerging Minds, with its delivery partners, is conducting a national workforce survey.
This survey seeks to understand the current levels of awareness and most pressing challenges facing professionals in supporting children’s mental health in their everyday practice.
This survey is the first of its kind and is being conducted as part of the National Workforce Centre for Child Mental Health (NWC). The NWC is funded by the Australian Government in recognition of the importance of prevention and early intervention in child mental health. The project focuses on building capacity in the existing workforce by providing high quality, free online professional learning, resources and implementation support.
This survey will provide a baseline measure for improving the way we support children’s mental health and meet the needs of professionals working across a range of professionals all over Australia. It will help the NWC understand the current needs and practices being undertaken to support children’s mental health in everyday practice.
