Community mental health services

We provide community mental health services across our district.

We can support you by providing information, support and treatment for you or someone in your family who is affected by mental health issues.

We are here to help you.

  • In an EMERGENCY please call 000, or go to the Emergency Department at your nearest hospital.
  • For mental health enquiries and to make an appointment, please call our FREE number: 1800 011 511. This number operates 24 hours 7 days a week.
  • You can also visit one of our centres during business hours.

We provide assessments, support and treatments, usually between the hours of 8.30 am to 5pm weekdays. 

Our mental health teams are located across the region. 

We provide the following specialist mental health care services:
