Fostering Communities of Practice in youth mental health

Case Studies

The Challenge

Practitioners who work with young people to provide early intervention mental health services have shared and distinct challenges facing them. This project was focused on developing a strategy and implementation plan for sharing innovation and practice across Australia with like-minded practitioners in youth mental health.


We worked with colleagues from across headspace National to co-design a strategy for Communities of Practice within the organisation and across the centre network. Capacity-building sessions were held with participants, and training materials and supplementary learning resources were developed and distributed to participants. In tandem, a technology solution was embedded into the organisation to support the roll-out of this model.


A strategy and accompanying implementation plan was co-designed and ratified by colleagues across the organisation who are now establishing strong and cohesive Communities of Practice to promote excellent practice, nationally.

We'd love to hear from you.

Marrying theory with practice, we collaborate with clients and partners to enable social impact through a methodical interrogation of ideas, rigorous problem solving and responsive solutions. If you're interested in designing, implementing or evaluating solutions that improve the world we live in, we'd love to work with you.
