Ethical Dilemmas in Mental Health Social Work Practice Group - A Practice Group Discussion
The Victorian Branch is delighted to offer this initiative developed by our Victorian Mental Health Social Work (VMHSW) Practice Group with a focus on Ethical Dilemmas in Mental Health Social Work. We welcome social workers who have an interest in exploring ethical dilemmas in a reflective space to join us for one, multiple or all of the upcoming sessions.
It must be emphasised that this is a reflective supportive group and does not replace supervision, there is an expectation all group members are attending supervision. This is an invaluable opportunity to draw on the diverse experience that will exist within the group, to share and to reflection on your own practice.

Expressions of interest
The Victorian Mental Health Practice Group (VMHSW) Convenor Aroon Naidoo is stepping down as convenor after six years in this voluntary role. A Practice Group cannot exist without a vibrant and commited leader and so we would love to hear from interested AASW members who can take up the mantle and continue the incredible work that this group has achieved over so many years.
To learn a bit more about the work and achievements of the VMHSW read the Convenor's Report December 2018.
To be a part of the VMHSW, or to find out more about the role of convenor, contact the AASW Victorian Branch.

Please contact [email protected] if you are interested on reading the submission made the Royal Commission by VMHSW in July 2019.
The VMSHW Practice Group has a rich history dating back over 35 years, originally set up to give voice to political and industrial concerns and to provide a focus for action; to represent a mental health social work perspective within Mental Health Division and to enhance mental health social work identity more broadly and to provide education days.
