Aboriginal Mental Health Worker's Forum

The Aboriginal Mental Health Worker's (AMHW) Forum is supported by the NSW Health Mental Health and Drug & Alcohol Office (MHDAO), and is held annually in different locations across the state. The forum brings together Aboriginal Mental Health Workers (AMHWs) from the public mental health system, Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services and Non Government Organisations and is designed to increase the expertise and knowledge of the emerging Aboriginal mental health workforce in New South Wales.
