Aboriginal Mental Health Workers Training Program
Walk Together, Learn Together, Work Together
A Practical Guide for the Training of Aboriginal Mental Health Professionals in New South Wales.
The Aboriginal Mental Health Worker Training Program is a workplace-based training program under the broader NSW Aboriginal Mental Health Workforce Program.
NSW Health has allocated specific funding for employing, training and educating additional Aboriginal Mental Health Workers within mental health services. They are recruited as Trainees to full-time, permanent positions to undertake on-the-job training and a relevant degree course.
The guide aims to focus, direct and support the different people, teams and mental health services participating in the Program.
