Mental Health Services

The PHN has commissioned an expanded range of mental health, suicide prevention and alcohol and other drug treatment services in the North Brisbane and Moreton Bay region.

Now on the ground in our region, these services are delivered across areas including:

  • low intensity mental health services
  • youth mental health services
  • Brisbane MIND services
  • severe and complex mental illness (mental health nursing services)
  • psychosocial disability (Partners in Recovery)
  • suicide prevention
  • alcohol and other drug treatment services
  • integrated mental healthcare for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Brisbane North PHN is developing a service magazine that will provide information about the services commissioned by Brisbane North PHN during 2017-18.
