Mental health and suicide prevention are key priorities for COORDINARE. We are guided by our Implementing a stepped care approach to mental health and suicide prevention statement to help improve access to a variety of local mental health services and options; support individual and community recovery; and reduce risk factors for suicide.
South Eastern NSW has high rates of mental and behavioural disorders and psychological distress amongst adults, with a greater burden borne by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and those living in rural areas where access to services may be limited .
In 2014, the National Health Commission undertook a review of mental health services and found they were not well targeted or tailored to local needs. The implementation of a stepped care approach to mental health and suicide was recommended, and COORDINARE is dedicated to leading this reform across the South Eastern NSW region.
