The emergency department mental health, alcohol and other drugs hub – at Barwon Health’s University Hospital in Geelong – 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.
Operated by Barwon Health, the five-bed hub will mean people presenting at University Hospital Geelong’s emergency department with mental health, alcohol and 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.
