    Abstract

    The MentorLink program of facilitated mentoring is an OT AUSTRALIA Victoria (Australian Association of Occupational Therapists - Victoria Inc.) initiative, which aimed to meet the need of occupational therapists, as expressed at the Victorian Occupational Therapy State Conference in 1997, for more professional support and assistance to be provided to Victorian occupational therapists. In 2003, the MentorLink program continues to thrive, and has now been renamed MentorLink ' Allied Health as it has been expanded to include the professions of podiatry and physiotherapy, with speech pathology and social work soon to join. Wilding and Marais-Strydom (2002) present a brief overview of the program and highlight how it can be used as a method of continuing professional development, while this paper aims to inspire Australian occupational therapists to consider empowering themselves through mentoring, by presenting a case story of a mentoring relationship in action.
