Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Planning Forums

We are listening...

We are continuing to develop a Joint Regional Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan with the Local Health District. The five year plan aims to improve the mental health outcomes and experiences for people in our region. It will define key areas of service development against priority needs that will support the provision of high quality, effective and efficient mental health care for people within the Nepean Blue Mountains region.

Community consultations are integral to the planning process. In late 2019,  we invited people who use local mental health and suicide prevention services in our region to share their views to help shape the way services are planned and designed for the future. This was conducted through a series of face-to-face and online community forums, as well as an online survey. 

Key outcomes from this consultation process will be incorporated into the plan. We will continue to keep you informed of the plans development as we progress.
