Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network in conjunction with LHN’s consumers and carers, key service providers, clinicians and peak bodies has developed a Regional Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs and Suicide Prevention Plan.

The Plan is aligned to a number of pieces of work already being undertaken in the region and includes strategies to guide service development and system integration over the next five years. 

The Eastern Melbourne Primary Healthcare Collaborative (EMPHCC) currently has oversight of the Regional Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs and Suicide Prevention Plan Project

EMPHCC is a region-wide platform of service providers and organisations focused on to improving health outcomes for people in eastern and north-eastern Melbourne. 

The focus of the EMPHCC is improving the outcomes of consumers and carers by enhancing primary health care services in community-based settings.
