Putting it into practice

As noted in Module 1: The role of online services even practitioners experienced in the use of e-mental health services need to review their practice and refresh their knowledge on a regular basis. Staying connected with fellow practitioners and a community of learning is important to critical practice.

Consider doing some of the following to continue building on your knowledge.

Download and discuss practice activities with colleagues

Download the practice activities and case studies, and use them for reflective practice conversations with colleagues at team meetings or other forums. Try applying some of the activities in practice and returning to the activity for reflection.

Module 1: The role of online services

Module 2: Using online communities in your work

Module 3: Using websites and online programs in your work

Module 4: Referring to online counselling and treatment services

Stay connected

Consider staying connected to other youth workers, social workers and other support workers who have done this training or who have an interest in the integration of e-mental health services into the work they do with young people.
