Mental health

We look to a collaborative mental health care model that encourages different sectors working together to provide complementary services and mutual support.

The Australian Government has funded Primary Health Networks (PHNs) to plan for, and commission, primary mental health from 1 July 2016.

Our PHN has localised the Australian Government’s stepped care approach by developing a mental health system of care for people who live in North Western Melbourne. We are working with GPs, psychologists, nurses, allied health providers, mental health services, consumers and carers to develop a model of mental health care. The model will reflect local needs and focus on safe, effective, quality mental health care service delivery.
