Thank you to everyone who contributed to our 2017 Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Needs Assessment.

Our final report is now available to view and download. Links are available at the right of the screen.



Hunter New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network (HNECC PHN) is undertaking a Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Needs Assessment to:

  • Develop a Regional Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan
  • Find out what services are needed in our region, and where they're needed..

We will be consulting with many people, including consumers, carers and a broad range of regional partner organisations.

This will include organisations delivering health services to vulnerable population groups such as children and young people, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

We will be undertaking Interviews and focus groups throughout the PHN region to gather information about the mental health needs of their communities.

To participate in the face-to-face assessment, you can contact Robyn Considine from Consan Consulting (details in the 'who's listening' section).

You can also register here on peoplebank now and join the conversation about improving the mental health and wellbeing of our community members.
