Mental Health Line 1800 011 511

The mental health clinical stream is part of a broad range of clinical services within the LHD that deliver services to mental health patients – including emergency departments and community health services.

The Director, Mental Health and Integrated Care is responsible for overall management of MNCLHD Mental Health Services, supported by the Director Medical Services/Clinical Director, District Manager and Manager, Nursing and Service Development in the provision of clinical and operational leadership to the service.

There are service managers in the clinical networks who are responsible for managing a unit of the Mental Health service, either in-patient or community. They are also responsible for strengthening partnerships and liaison with other services. A range of State and LHD-wide initiatives are developed, implemented, coordinated and evaluated from the LHD service.

Future Goals

The development of a Clinical Services Plan for Mid North Coast LHD Mental Health Services provides the opportunity to review population needs against current service capacity and plan for the range of acute, non-acute inpatient and ambulatory services required to meet the needs of the Mid North Coast community to 2021 and beyond.

The Plan supports contemporary models of care, including a greater emphasis on primary, community and ambulatory care services with a multidisciplinary orientation that will excel in the provision of recovery focussed care and services which are better integrated with non-government and primary care for the benefit of consumers and their carers.
