The Department of Health and Ageing has provided the Mental Health Council of Australia (MHCA) with $6 million to assist in the development of the capacity of non-government mental health organisations and other organisations delivering services relating to mental health.

There are two opportunities:

Workshops are being held across Australia to showcase the possibilities for capacity enhancement within NGOs delivering mental health services. Workshops tackle HR, I.T, governance, business planning and development of links to other agencies.
Organisations are not required to attend a workshop to apply for a grant but one part of each workshop will provide information to assist organisations with the application
process.
