Abstract
The Emerging Minds: National Workforce Centre for Child Mental Health is a new national program to assist health, social and community service professionals who work with children, parents or families to have the skills to identify, assess and support children (0-12 years) at risk of mental health conditions. This presentation will provide participants with: (1) contextual information that led to the development of the program; (2) a snapshot of infant and child mental health in Australia; and, (3) an overview of how the program will be delivered to influence and support workforce change.
