The Commonwealth Government has funded PHNs to plan for, and commission, primary mental health from 1 July 2016.

Our PHN has localised the Commonwealth Government’s stepped care approach by developing a mental health system of care for people who live in North Western Melbourne. NWMPHN will work 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.
