Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (EMPHN), in conjunction with local health networks (LHNs), consumers and carers, key service providers, clinicians and peak bodies developed the Regional Integrated Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs and Suicide Prevention Plan for eastern and north-eastern Melbourne (the Plan) 2019-2024. The development of the Plan was overseen by the Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Care Collaborative (EMPHCC) on behalf of the entire EMPHN region.
The Plan was developed since late 2018 and informed by feedback from people representing more than 100 organisations who were consulted including strong contributions from people with lived experience.
The Plan launched in March 2020.
