Applications are now open for health workers to specialise in the field of addiction at a postgraduate level.
The Graduate Certificate of Addictive Behaviours scholarships will help workers broaden their ability to provide treatment, support and care for Victorians with co-occurring mental health and substance use or addiction.
20 eligible workers will receive a scholarship valued at $10,000 each. The online course will be delivered by Monash University from February to November in 2024.
The scholarships will help grow Victoria’s addiction specialist workforce and improve outcomes for Victorians and their families living with mental health and alcohol and other drug conditions.
The scholarships are delivered by the Hamilton Centre, Victoria’s new statewide centre to support integrated care for people living with mental illness and substance use or addiction.
Launched earlier this year, the Hamilton Centre delivers on a key recommendation of the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System, to develop a best practice model of integrated care.
