Request for tender: Mental health support for parents in the antenatal and post-natal period

North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network (NWMPHN) is seeking providers to implement a stepped care approach to support the mental health and wellbeing of parents in the critical antenatal and post-natal period.

NWMPHN has consulted with both the Royal Women’s Hospital’s (RWH) Mother and Baby Unit and Perinatal Anxiety and Depression Australia (PANDA), confirming there is a need for a community based mental health and wellbeing program to support new parents.

Working through this issue with RWH and PANDA, it has also become apparent that a program to support improved mental health and wellbeing for parents would be particularly helpful for families that have difficulty accessing other services.

Applicants are encouraged to submit innovative tenders that will deliver a model of care that meets the mental health needs of new parents in the NWMPHN catchment.

A collaborative approach that involves working with new parents in the community would be advantageous in developing a proactive and integrated model.

A tender briefing was held on 15 February at NWMPHN. A copy of the briefing presentation is available here.
