EMHSCA provides service coordination focused events each year that are free to attend and targeted for staff at all levels of health and community services across the Inner- and Outer- Eastern areas of Melbourne.

These events include:

  • Collaborative care Planning Workshops
  • Regional orientation events
  • Service and sector navigation forums
  • Psychosocial focused NDIS pathway forums
  • Complex needs workshops

These events aim to improve connections, knowledge and understanding between service providers, ultimately enhancing coordination of care and supports for people who experience mental ill-health and co-occurring issues.


Recordings and presentations of EMHSCA events can be found here.
