All functions of the St Vincent’s Mental Health Service will continue to operate and are still accepting referrals. However, telephone contact and triaging will replace face-to-face care where safe to do so.
If the usual 24-hour Mental Health Triage number (1300 558 862) is not working, please contact Psychiatric Triage by phoning the hospital switchboard on 03 9231 2211.
GPs and referrers are asked to please read the fact sheet for full details.
