Mental Health Physiotherapy Group

The Mental Health Physiotherapy group is made up of physiotherapists who work or have an interest in the area of mental health. This is a newly formed national group of the APA.

The APA has recently joined International Organization of Physical Therapists in Mental Health (IOMPTH), a World Confederation of Physical Therapy sub-group, and echoes the group’s sentiment that the contribution of physiotherapists working in this area needs to be brought into the spotlight. There needs to be recognition of the importance of physiotherapy for the client, society and the physiotherapy profession to create a culture of physiotherapy in mental health care. Our group aims to help achieve this for Australian physiotherapists.
