Background on UWA mhpn.
This is an open network that aims to bring together people providing mental health services to UWA tertiary students. The purpose of the network includes information sharing, collaboration and professional development opportunities. It is envisaged that the network will provide opportunities for the UWA Services to enhance referral pathways to external clinical services with the aim of improving the coordination of care students receive.
