Posted October 16, 2023
Access to quality primary healthcare is crucial for driving health equity and addressing gaps in mental health service offerings. It ensures that mental health is integrated into overall healthcare, reduces stigma, promotes early intervention, and makes mental health services more accessible to all, ultimately improving the mental health and wellbeing of our communities.
The Hunter New England and Central Coast PHN is committed to our vision of ‘Healthy People and Healthy Communities’. This paper details the journey of the PHN and highlights some of the many notable milestones and achievements in delivering mental health services and solutions for our communities, in the quest for realising our vision.
Many of these achievements may be attributed to the way we work with our communities and service providers to identify the most significant gaps; work with agility and responsiveness to provide diverse and tailored service solutions; and, how we build capacity on our journey to deliver improved health outcomes.
