Release of Mental Health Regional Plan 2020-2025
Posted March 31 2021
The Primary Health Network has a strong commitment to mental health and suicide prevention and recognise the importance of a system-wide approach to better outcomes for individuals and communities.
The Mental Health Regional Plan provides a blueprint for more reliable and integrated mental health services in the Hunter, New England and Central Coast regions. In line with the directions of the Fifth National Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan (5th National Plan)1, this plan acknowledges the need to provide more integrated care, and focus on the fragmentation across the service system to address unmet needs and improve outcomes and experiences of care for individual and communities in our area.
The plan has been developed as a partnership between:
- Hunter New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network
- Central Coast Local Health District
- Hunter New England Local Health District.
