eMental Health in Practice

The e-Mental Health in Practice (eMHPrac) initiative is funded by the Australian Government, to increase the use of digital resources, tools and services in primary care across Australia. It raises awareness, provides training to practitioners on how to integrate these resources in routine services, and fosters peer support. In its first 3 years, it has particularly focused on GPs and allied practitioners and people working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, but now is also supporting low-intensity mental health service providers. The eMHPrac initiative is led by Professor David Kavanagh (Director) and Dr Angela White (Deputy Director) at Queensland University of Technology, and has involved collaborations with Black Dog Institute, Menzies School of Health Research, the ANU Centre for Mental Health Research and the University Centre for Rural Health, University of Sydney. The project began in 2013 and has funding until June 2019.
