PHN Priorities: Mental health

21 July 2016

The issue of mental health has the attention of the health care and broader community alike. Meeting needs of people with mental health issues and those of their carers requires flexibility in approach and solutions, and this has been supported through funding for a diverse range of projects across the community. As the WA PHN embarks on a project to map Western Australia’s mental health and drug services against social and demographic needs, we take a look at some of the ways that the health care community has recently contributed to supporting mental health care in Australia and highlight upcoming events.

    • Assist program clients to test their eligibility for NDIS supports
    • Assist eligible clients to access NDIS supports
    • Provide program services to NDIS participants during the transition phase

The focus of the transition phase of the programs is to support the NDIS rollout.
