Find a Balint Group to Join
Balint groups registered with the BSANZ can be found using the menus on this page.
We advise you to contact group leader/s to make a time to meet them to check if a group you are looking at joining is a good fit for you.
Here is some general information about these listings:
Online groups are listed according to the leaders’ home time zone. Please ensure you make the appropriate adjustment when you plan to join.
Medical practitioners, unless otherwise stated, includes GPs and specialists.
Mixed professionals refers to medical practitioners as well as other allied health clinicians. These include social workers, psychologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapist, art therapist, counsellors, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and so on. When in doubt, ask the leader/contact person.
Do you wish to have a Balint group in your practice or local area?
Or a taster or introductory Balint group workshop for your
practice, organisation, student cohort or professional association?
Many Accredited Leaders are available to set up a new group on request.

You will see that some groups include a note about Mental Health Professionals Network (MHPN) support. The MHPN is an Australian Government initiative to encourage multidisciplinary networks of professionals working in mental health areas. Groups registered with MHPN may claim a small amount of funding assistance. Further, when the coordinator provides attendance listings, MHPN emails attendance certificates to participants. These can assist claims for CPD/CME points.
