CMHDARN: apply for a research mentor

Are you considering a research or sector development project and would like a mentor to support the development of your idea?

The CMHDARN Community Research Mentoring Program supports workers from MHCC and NADA member organisations who have an interest in developing their research knowledge and skills with academic mentor support. Applications close COB Friday 29 June 2018.

The program aims to:

  • increase mentee confidence, knowledge and skills in the areas of research
  • provide mentors with an opportunity to enhance their understanding of community managed organisations
  • further develop a research culture within community managed organisations
  • increase mentors’ understanding of practice related issues concerning organisations working in the community managed mental health and AOD sectors, as well as better understanding stakeholders’ interests (e.g. consumers, clients, carers) and experiences.

If your application is successful, you will be matched with a postdoctoral research fellow from the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Mental Health and Substance Use (CREMS) at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), or another university.

Visit the CMHDARN website to download the application form and view the guidelines for applicants.

Please phone the Research Network coordinator on 02 9555 8388 [ext 121] or email info@cmhdaresearchnetwork.com.au with any queries.

The CMHDARN is a partnership project between NADA, the Mental Health Coordinating Council (MHCC) and the NSW Mental Health Commission.
