Following the Commonwealth announced funding for Head to Health Moruya, COORDINARE – South Eastern NSW PHN is seeking proposals from mental health providers to operate this service for people living in Eurobodalla LGA and surrounding areas.

Head to Health offers face-to-face, as well as digital, video and telephone, mental health services, ensuring people can access the services and support in their neighbourhood, on site or remotely. The service will be agile and flexible to adapt to local need, pandemics, and natural disasters.

Proposals submitted in partnership with another provider or as a collective of providers will be considered. The mental health provider must be able to provide the service in a premises readily accessible to the community, for example an established, trusted community centre in Moruya. The service must be accessible by public transport.
