Skills & Knowledge concentrates on growing the capacity of Australia’s youth mental health workforce with an emphasis on accessible expertise and innovation.
We do this by providing leadership, national and international collaboration and professional development to organisations, individuals and health services. We also undertake major mental health workforce development programs for governments.
Our program has its foundation in evidence-based practice and research undertaken by Orygen, a world-leader in youth mental health.
We provide training and professional development for youth mental health professionals, police officers, youth justice workers, among others. This includes the creation and delivery of graduate qualifications in partnership with universities and facilitating international and national collaboration through dialogue.
Through the Skills & Knowledge Division Orygen is able to make available to the wider youth mental health community: training materials, clinical resources and products.
