Abstract: In response to the growing need of many Asian-Pacific countries to enhance their mental health services, St Vincent’s Mental Health has been privileged to participate in training and service development through the Post-graduate Overseas Training Program and Asia Australia Mental Health. The resulting benefits for an area mental health service are reinforced by the ability to contribute to significant developments in community mental health, particularly in China.
