Expressions of interest: Mental health capacity building project
NADA is seeking expressions of interest from members to participate in a project to further build the mental health capacity of the non-government AOD sector.
NADA have commissioned the Matilda Centre for Research in Mental Health and Substance Use, University of Sydney, to undertake a capacity building project.
They will use an extended version of the Dual Diagnosis Capability in Addiction Treatment (DDCAT) Tool to complete a baseline assessment of organisational capacity in working with people who have co-occurring mental health needs. This assessment will guide the formulation of a one-year work plan targeted at increasing organisational capacity. The implementation of this work plan will be supported by the Matilda Centre and NADA, where appropriate. Upon completion of the work plan, The Matilda Centre will carry out a final DDCAT assessment to measure the effectiveness of this intervention.
While the project will involve four member organisations, the outcomes of this research will be shared with the broader sector once completed.
NADA proudly acknowledges the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation as the custodians of the land on which our office stands. We extend this acknowledgement to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across Australia and pay our respects to Elders past, present and future.
