Kimberley O’Brien, our Principal Child Psychologist and Jacqui Olsson our Intern Psychologist, facilitated the first North Bondi branch meeting of the Mental Health Professionals Network on Tuesday, 11th August 2009 at the Swiss Grand Hotel, Bondi Beach.

These meetings have been designed to foster greater collaboration by bringing together local mental health professionals from a range of disciplines, and the initial meeting was a great success. Attendees were from a variety of disciplines such as psychology, general practice, and naturopathy.

These meetings – and the networks they support and create –  offer informal networking opportunities and a forum to discuss interdisciplinary professional approaches to care in the primary mental health sector.

After complimentary drinks and dinner, attendees formed a group to discuss the case study of Sam, an eight-year-old boy with social anxiety issues. This case study enabled everyone to:

  • recognise the specific skills offered by other mental health professions in the local area;
  • identify local mental health referral pathways and resources;
  • identify opportunities for on-going professional development and mutual support.

The next meeting of the North Bondi MHPN branch is tentatively scheduled for eight weeks time.
