Mental Health Transition Update - Health Service Navigator contracts awarded!

August 21, 2018

We are pleased to announce the successful providers who ill deliver Health Service Navigation for people with or at risk of mental illness across the region.

Services navigation plays a critical role in the stepped care approach to mental health.  Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN has commissioned Health Service Navigators to assist GPs, service providers, consumers and carers to navigate the services available under stepped care in our region. The Health Service Navigators role is to:

  • Coordinate linkages to supports and services for patients and consumers;
  • Map and identify mental health service needs and gaps in communities at the local level; and
  • Provide information where appropriate for services offered by the PHN under Primary Mental Health Care and information for consumers on other PHN programs and supports as necessary.
