Clinical and Mental Health Practice Group

Practice Groups are a way to share, increase and disseminate knowledge between social workers with a particular sphere of interest or regional base.

Key benefits of the Clinical and Mental Health Practice Group:

  • Contribute to social policy and social justice initiatives under the auspices of the professional association for social work.
  • Resource sharing and access to evolving information in the field.
  • Involvement in Practice Groups collects Category 3 CPD hours.
  • Contribute to research activity and hear about what is happening in our area
  • Work to address systemically issues arising for individual Mental Health Social Workers

What is the Clinical and Mental Health Practice Group?

The CMHPG provides a forum for social workers to network and participate in skill building processes. It is ideal for social workers currently working in the field of Mental Health or Clinical Social Work or those who are considering pursuing a career in this field of practice. The Group works to assist members to develop best practice and remain up to date with current trends in the field and in research.

What are the Clinical and Mental Health Practice Group's main activities?

The CMHPG bi-monthly meetings often host guest speakers with expertise in topical issues, we have networking events and when the opportunity arises we have larger events to cater to the needs of membership.
