What is eMHPrac?

The eMHPrac (e-Mental Health in Practice) Project is funded by the Australian Government and aims to raise health practitioner awareness and knowledge of e-Mental Health and to provide free training and support in its use to GPs, Allied Health Professionals, and service providers working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Digital Mental Health (or e-Mental Health) is an approach that offers mental health support and assistance to people at any time and in any place. Digital Mental Health includes mental health assessment, intervention, support, or information via the internet, mobile devices, telephone, or computers. 

eMHPrac activities are free of charge and include:
  • Training workshops offered at select locations and times
  • Training webinars broadcast live and delayed online which can be accessed from any location with a reliable internet connection
  • Online training modules which can be accessed at any time from any location
  • Provision of short-term support and mentoring in use of e-mental health including telephone and email support and online peer discussion forum. 
If you would like to find out more information on eMHPrac training please contact us through the eMHPrac website.

Australia's new digital mental health gateway, Head to Health

A new website that links Australians to online and phone mental health services, information and resources was launched in October 2017. Head to Health connects people to trusted online and phone mental health services appropriate for their individual needs.

Services and resources listed on Head to Health are delivered by Australia’s trusted mental health service providers. They include free or low-cost apps, online support communities, online courses, and phone services that are private and secure.

Head to Health will help people to take control of their mental health, at a time and place convenient to them, complementing or in place of face-to-face services. It supports people seeking help- either for themselves or someone they care about.

Head to Health is not only helpful when seeking support for a mental health condition, it also provides information about staying mentally well for every Australian.

Head to Health was developed in collaboration with the community, the mental health sector and the Department of Health. eMHPrac is one of the Head to Health service provider partners. Visit headtohealth.gov.au for more information.
