Healthy North Coast is holding workshops to help improve the design and delivery of mental health and alcohol and other drugs (AOD) services in our region.
The workshops, being held with our local health partners, the North Coast community and health care providers, are part of a new reform project for mental health, suicide prevention and AOD services.
Data from the Healthy North Coast 2022-25 Health Needs Assessment and other sources shows us that we need to do things differently to meet the needs of our community. To find out more, visit the reform project webpage today.
Thanks to those who participated in the Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie workshops. There’s still time to join tomorrow’s Grafton session or Tweed (Thursday, September 1) and Lismore (Friday, September 2). If you can attend, click here to register now.
You’ll be joining professional colleagues, service providers, community groups, people with lived experience and carers to help improve health outcomes for our community.
We know not everyone will be able to make it to one of the workshops, to be held in Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie, Grafton, Tweed Heads and Lismore. So, we’re planning follow-up sessions for GPs and mental health clinicians to ensure all voices can be heard as part of the reform process.
