Webinar 9 AHP: Integrating digital mental health tools and resources into the services you provide: a practitioners’ guide
Digital mental health
Digital mental health (DMH) tools and resources are increasingly being used in mental health services in Australia and other developed countries. It is hoped that they will help increase access to services, both as lower intensity interventions as well as in combination with higher intensity traditional therapy interventions.
The range of available tools is becoming more comprehensive and a good evidence base has been built up for some types of interventions such as online programs. There is now increasing interest in exploring how these tools can best be incorporated into the daily work of practitioners.
This webinar is designed to provide an overview of recent developments in the use of these tools in routine care and to support practitioners as they explore the rich array of high quality tools currently available in Australia.
Participants will gain maximum benefit from the this webinar if they have a basic understanding of digital mental health resources – for example through:
- their own experience,
- by participating in the first webinar of this series, which provides a closer examination of how practitioners can select appropriate tools for use in their work
- other accessing other resources on the Black Dog Institute website.
- Digital Mental Health resources can be used to extend and enhance mental health interventions.
- Practitioners need to be able to select these resources and integrate them into their work appropriately
- Webinar participants will be introduced to the main types of D-MH resources currently available and learn how to select appropriate resources for use in their practice
This webinar has been designed for psychologists and allied mental health practitioners, but is open to other health professionals interested in using digital resources in their practice. The webinar may also be of interest to practitioners commissioning or providing mental health services for Primary Health Networks. Students working towards a career in mental health or counselling are also invited to attend.
