About the Webinar

The World Health Organization defines mental health as ‘a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.’ 

With 10.6% of the Australian population receiving Medicare subsidised mental health-specific services in 2018-19, it is imperative that nurses working in primary health care can provide assessment and practical interventions in alignment with their individual scope of practice. 

This webinar is part of APNA’s Chronic Disease Management and Healthy Ageing Program. To find out more about the program, please click here.
