Adapting our operations during COVID-19

We’ve been developing new opportunities for practitioners and teams to learn and stay connected online whilst our face-to-face events are on hold.  
 
Our existing range of self-directed online learning modules, covering a variety of topics on culturally responsive practice, are freely accessible to explore.  

You can also find links to translated information about Coronavirus (COVID-19) available in a range of community languages.

The VTMH team can be contacted via phone on (03) 9231 3300 or vtmh@svha.org.au, and are utilising video and teleconferencing facilities as alternative ways to connect to continue to engage in project and partnership work.
