For practitioners working in publicly funded, clinical mental health or community support services in Victoria


A free secondary consultation service is available  to mental health practitioners who are seeking assistance in their work with families.

This Department of Health and Human Services subsidised service can be provided at The Bouverie Centre or over the telephone. Videoconferencing is also available to rural services.

The Beacon Strategy

Motivated and committed practitioners and managers from several Victorian publically funded mental health services have partnered with The Bouverie Centre in a bid to drive and support the adoption of family inclusive practices within their agencies. Read more about our approach to supporting services to achieve and sustain real improvements in their responsiveness to families.

Special events

Several free events are held at The Bouverie Centre each year specifically for the mental health field. They include:

  • A one-day annual mini conference which brings together consumers, family members and practitioners in a unique three way conversation called a ‘trialogue’.
  • Two x three-hour 'Family Sensitive Practice' forums for practitioners, consumers and family members to report on the latest developments in the field both at Bouverie and in the wider mental health sector.
