VIC Seminars & Training

Supporting the Infant and Their Family Day and Night- The Roles of O'Connell Family Centre, Tweddle, and Queen Elizabeth Centre

With presentations from:

Helen Cunningham, Director Services and Operations - Queen Elizabeth Centre
Jacquie O’Brien, CEO - Tweddle
Kerri McEgan, Manager/Director of Nursing - Mercy Health O’Connell Family Centre

Saturday 12th August
9:30am - 12:30pm
VAPP, 18 Erin St, Richmond

Helen, Jacquie and Kerri will speak about the long histories of their organisations in supporting Victorian families, and their visions for the future of this kind of vital care. Perhaps once thought of as ‘sleep schools’, they will share information about the comprehensive and holistic programs currently offered to support all aspects of the early years. A wonderful opportunity for infant mental health clinicians and allied professionals to learn more about the range of services available for all our clients, and to discuss the best collaborative ways forward.

There will be a Q&A and time for discussion, and a chance to talk with the presenters and other members over morning tea.

Dear AAIMHI (Vic) Colleagues,

With Apologies, and

An invitation to be part of the AAIMHI Conference

Melbourne University, Carlton Campus

We have invited representatives from three organisations serving Victoria’s infants and their families to speak at our upcoming Saturday seminar, and we hope you can come and participate in an informative, interesting and collaborative morning.

We are sorry, but this will be our last [not] Quarterly Seminar for the year because we are organising and preparing for the conference.

We do hope you will join us for the Conference, perhaps present a poster on your work and join a facilitated discussion session.  Please encourage your colleagues to come too. Attached is a conference flyer to share with your networks.

If you would like to play a role hosting interstate colleagues or making a contribution to the running of the conference, please let us know:

Yours faithfully
Meredith Banks
