The University of Sydney's Matilda Centre for Research in Mental Health and Substance Use (Matilda Centre) are now taking registrations for our inaugural National Comorbidity Guidelines Train-the-Trainer day.

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 certified to deliver the National Comorbidity Guidelines Face-to-Face Training Program, and provide evidence-based training for alcohol and other drug workers to improve their capacity to manage co-occurring mental disorders.

More information about the content of the face to face training sessions can be found here; bit.ly/f2f-session-objectives

PLEASE NOTE: The inaugural class of trainers will be limited to 40 people.

Registrations will close 5pm Friday 17th April.

Cost: Free

Who should attend: Training facilitators are required to have successfully completed tertiary training in a relevant field; have a comprehensive knowledge of comorbidity and/or experience working with people experiencing co-occurring mental and substance use disorders; be skilled in substance use and mental health interventions; possess sound training skills, and have the capacity to deliver workplace training.

Skills gained: Trainers will become registered trainers through the Matilda Centre, and subject to signing licensing agreements, licensed to deliver the National Comorbidity Guidelines Face-to-Face Training Program. Participants will receive a certificate of completion, which depending on their registration provider, may be used towards continuing professional development points.
