Project Details

Project Description

In 2023, Emerging Minds commenced work on the ‘Scoping child mental health workforce capability’ project (the Workforce Stocktake). The problem this project is aiming to address stems from findings reported in the recent National Children’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy, that professionals working across primary health, public mental health and other sectors have variable skills and abilities in child mental health, with many professionals lacking the skills or competency to specifically support children’s mental health and wellbeing. This project will undertake a workforce scoping process to consider opportunities to increase the skills of professionals working with children and families, particularly in rural areas.
