National Comorbidity Guidelines Train-the-Trainer Day

May 20 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm


Are you interested in being trained to deliver mental health training in your workplace?

The University of Sydney’s Matilda Centre for Research in Mental Health and Substance Use have limited places remaining for our National Comorbidity Guidelines Train-the-Trainer Workshops. 

The training is based on the Australian Government Department of Health-funded National Comorbidity Guidelines (Guidelines on the management of co-occurring alcohol and other drug and mental health conditions in alcohol and other drug treatment settings), and has been developed by researchers from the University of Sydney Matilda Centre for Research in Mental Health and Substance Use, in collaboration with 360Edge.

Participants will become registered trainers through the Matilda Centre, and subject to signing licensing agreements, able to deliver the National Comorbidity Guidelines Face-to-Face Training Program.
