The eMHPrac Project is an Australian government initiative to promote the use of e-mental health resources among primary care workers across Australia. The project will work with primary health care providers, including GPS, allied health, nursing, and indigenous health workers across Australia. It is a collaboration between Queensland University of Technology, The Australian National University, The Black Dog Institute, Menzies School of Health Research and University Centre for Rural Health at The University of Sydney.

The eMHPrac team at NIMHR has established an e-Mental Health Support Service designed for allied health workers in primary care (including psychologists, social workers, counsellors, occupational therapists, community health workers, peer support and other allied health workers), as well as practice and mental health nurses.

Over the next three years we will be providing a range of e-mental health training opportunities. This will include face-to-face workshops, online training modules, an online discussion group and webinars.

As part of this service we are seeking to understand Australian primary care allied health workers’ and nurses' awareness and use of online mental health services.  We will conduct annual surveys in 2014, 2015, and 2016. The next survey will be in 2015. If you would like to register your interest in participating in this survey please email us at emhprac@anu.edu.au.
