The Plan

Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (EMPHN), in conjunction with local health networks (LHNs), consumers and carers, key service providers, clinicians and peak bodies is developing a Regional Integrated Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs and Suicide Prevention Plan (the Plan).  The development of the Plan is being overseen by the Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Care Collaborative (EMPHCC) on behalf of the entire EMPHN region.

The Plan will be aligned to a number of pieces of work already occurring in the region and will include key strategies to guide service development and system integration over the coming five years.

Discussion Paper 1  outlines the context for the plan and initial findings of the early stages of consultation.

Progress Paper 2019 provides and updates on the progress of the plan including key strategies for action
