Updated COVIDSafe settings for metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria are now in place. Learn more
The emergency department mental health, alcohol and other drugs hub – at St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne – is one of six new hubs being delivered across the state.
The six hubs are part of the Victorian Government’s $32 million investment to better support Victorians experiencing urgent mental health, alcohol and drug issues.
The new six-bed hub will mean people presenting at St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne’s emergency department with mental health, alcohol or other drug issues can be fast tracked to specialist, dedicated care – providing them with the right support, sooner.
This investment builds on the work of the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System’s 74 recommendations to transform mental health support and care to make it accessible, flexible and responsive.
